The Wabanaki Winter Market at the Collins Center for the Arts (Orono, Maine) is New England’s largest holiday gathering of Wabanaki artists. The popular annual December event features members of the Maine Indian Basketmakers Alliance who have received national awards, as well as new artists representing the next generation of weavers.
The event provides the public with an opportunity to purchase Wabanaki art directly from the artists and to learn about these ancient traditions.
Join the Hudson Museum on December 9, 2023 for a day that will showcase one-of-a-kind art forms (basketry, beadwork, wood carving, birchbark items), and maple syrup as well as demonstrations, storytelling, traditional music, drumming and dancing. Something for everyone!
The Hudson Museum will be open during the event, and visitors are encouraged to explore the Wabanaki Gallery where they can view the work of the ancestors of the contemporary artists.
The Wabanaki Winter Market is FREE and open to the public.
This event is supported in part by grants from the Maine Office of Tourism and the Onion Foundation
