Here in the Kennebunks, the vast majority of our small businesses depend on tourism in some way. To ensure all visitors to our town are free to enjoy themselves, our local hotels, restaurants, shops and attractions are working hard to keep the Kennebunks cleaner and safer than ever.
Our Promise to YOU
You are our guests and we are thrilled to welcome you to our town. For the safety of our hard-working business owners and their employees, we ask you to consider three things before you visit.

What is the status of the Memorial Day Parade?
Due to public health concerns for both our veterans and the general public, the annual Memorial Day Parade has been cancelled. We hope that everyone will honor our veterans through the display of the American flag, thanking veterans and consider donating to your local American Legion post.

Currently, the annual Fourth of July festivities are on hold as we gather more guidance from the State of Maine and the Center for Disease Control.
