WINTER HARBOR —Creativity flourishes just about anywhere, something that visitors and area residents will see when they embark on a Sept. 10-11 “Schoodic Creativity Tour” on the Schoodic Peninsula.

The free, self-guided weekend tour includes more than 40 stops and is intended to showcase the local, creative economy, said Pam Broderick, a member of the town’s Economic Development Committee.

“We want it to be more than an art tour,” said Broderick.

“We want to show,” adds committee member Carol Michaud, “there is art and creativity in everything that people do and how creativity affects the economy.”

The tour ranges from farms, a lobster cooperative, art studios and galleries, to an inn, antique shops and photo gallery, winery and bell making foundry, among other locations.

Tour maps and brochures are available at each stop as well as at the Winter Harbor Agency at 165 Route 1 in Gouldsboro and at West Bay Antiques at 1037 Route 1, also in Gouldsboro.
