I'm Dreaming of a Beach Christmas!


Coastal Christmas Events

We have put together this list of Coastal Christmas Events, all located in beach areas, and many of which include seaside themes or activities. If you love a Christmas Light Boat Parade, or seeing Santa arrive in the harbor by boat is on your seasonal to-do list, then you need to take a look through these festivities. You're sure to find something special to kick off your holiday season!




Christmas Prelude is a wonderful family friendly seaside holiday celebration in Kennebunkport. It is a weeklong event, starting at the end of November and running through the first week of December. It includes tree lightings, parades, fireworks, festively decorated shops, and more.


The Annual Christmas by the Sea celebration is held the second weekend of December every year in charming Ogunquit. The event includes a wide variety of activities - tree lightings, a bonfire, concerts, a craft show, children's activities, and the very popular Christmas parade.
