Woodies in the Cove
Saturday, August 14, 2021

The pandemic forced us to cancel our annual Woodies in the Cove car show for 2020, but we are a go for 2021!  This popular event has been held every August for more than 8 years and is well known in the world of Woodie car shows.  We’re pleased that it was one of the “top things to do at Exit 19” in 95 North magazine in 2018 and 2019.  This unique vintage car show and parade is our annual fundraiser, with all proceeds to benefit the Society.  Click here for details!

Warrior Sports Through the Years
Fall 2021 (Date to be determined) at the Meetinghouse

Join us as we team up (pun intended!) with the Wells High School Alumni Association to present a fun and fascinating program tracing the history of school sports in Wells and Ogunquit.  Do you have any photos, stories, or newspaper clippings that you're willing to share for the program?  If so, please contact us.  Thanks!

Market at the Meetinghouse
Summer 2021 (We hope!)

Twice a year we host artisans, craftspeople, vintage vendors, and local small businesses for a summer and holiday Market at the Meetinghouse. Vendor spaces are available at $25 each with all proceeds to benefit the educational programs at the Historical Society. All who are interested are asked to contact us to register for a vendor space.

It’s the summer’s perfect spot for a “pop-up shop” of your items on Route 1. In the winter, it's a cozy place inside the historic 1862 Meetinghouse as part of Ogunquit’s festive Christmas by the Sea weekend - and the perfect spot to view the Town of Wells Holiday Parade.

Annual Meeting
Date to be announced

Each fall the Historical Society of Wells and Ogunquit opens its doors to members as the Board of Directors invites the community to a presentation of special guests and a tour of the collection galleries. Light refreshments are served.

“The Annual Meeting is a great chance for our friends and members to enjoy our beautiful Meetinghouse and find out what we’ve been doing over the past year,” says Irene Crocker, Chair of the Board of Directors. “There is always time for discussion as we ask for feedback on how we’ve been doing. We’ll ask for ideas for what you’d like to see us doing next year."
