The Abbe Midsummer

August 3, 2017, 5:30pm - August 3, 2017, 8:00pm

The Abbe Midsummer is a benefit to further the Museum’s mission in the Dawnland. It's the Abbe’s largest annual public fundraiser and, without it, we wouldn't be able to do all the important work we do as the only Smithsonian Affiliate in the state of Maine.
