If you haven’t been to Rockland in a decade or two, get ready for a surprise.

Always the rough-and-tumble cousin to Camden and Rockport, Rockland has undergone a transformation in recent years, fueled largely by the growth of the Farnsworth Art Museum and an entire crop of new restaurants, shops, and galleries. The working waterfront remains, with plenty of fishermen and workboat skippers still using the wharfs off Tillson Avenue, but these days a variety of marinas cater to recreational craft of all sizes and shapes. The city’s public landing is home to several high-profile events each summer, from the diet-busting lobster festival in late July to the Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors Show the second week in August.

If you're looking for the real Maine of today, you'll find it in Rockland.

“Rockland has it all, literally,” says John Hanson, Publisher of Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors. “There’s commercial maritime activity, yachting, boatbuilding, art, food, and it’s a transportation hub and huge harbor right in the middle of the best cruising grounds. We couldn’t have picked a better place for the Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors Show.”
