Fashion Night Out - Bar Harbor

Fashion Night Out - Bar Harbor

Bar Harbor's Second Annual Fashion Night Out  promises to be even more exciting and fun than last year with double the merchants and restaurants participating. This fashion forward event started in New York City in 2009 and now happens in over 1600 cities worldwide, including the only town in Maine to host the event...Bar Harbor. It's listed by the Bangor Daily News among the Top 50 Things to Do in Maine this Summer! You will find the revelry in stores, galleries and restaurants all over town on Thursday, September 6, from 6 pm to 10 pm.

It's an evening full of fun, fashion, and festivities. Merchants and customers alike are encouraged to dress up in their favorite styles, and many venues will offer specials for festive attire.


I had a really nice time last night. I went to a party at McCabe, Duval + Associates — they’re on the top floor of a building in the Old Port with amazing views of the waterfront. The theme was a summer picnic, French bistro style. I decided to dress in my version of casual French. I put on black capri pants and a long sleeved fitted dark purple t-shirt and slipped into a pair of black flats. My twenty something daughter is living with us for the time being and I’ve gotten into the habit of running outfits by her before leaving the house. Each time I realize that I am risking humiliation, but she has given me invaluable advice and claims to have saved me many times from public humiliation on a much grander scale.
