Welcome to the Saco River Festival Association

 Since its founding in 1976, the Saco River Festival Association has earned a respected reputation by bringing distinguished musicians to delight audiences each year through its annual summer concerts held in Cornish, Maine. Co-founded by Frank and Ruth Glazer, the Festival Association serves the cultural interests of the Sacopee Valley and contiguous areas in Cumberland, York, and Oxford counties and that part of New Hampshire bordering Southwestern Maine.

Since the Glazers launched the organization from their 19th century farmhouse in Porter, Maine, the group has gathered a devoted following and has hosted over 300 national and internationally known artists and numerous Maine based groups who have performed hundreds of different works from major classical literature. 

Our Mission

    The Festival Association’s mission is to present the best in music through performances by
    major artists, encourage and nurture community appreciation of all the arts, and develop the musical interests of school-age children through meaningful educational programs in the schools.

Over 30,000 Concert Attendees Since 1976!
