Friends of Colonial Pemaquid Announce  Cancellation of Castlebay Concert Slated for August 29

Because Governor Mills has extended Maine's state of civil emergency due to COVID-19  through September 3, the Friends of Colonial Pemaquid (FOCP), a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting Colonial Pemaquid State Historic Site’s historical significance through the development and sponsorship of educational programs, regretfully announces the cancellation of its Castlebay end of the season concert scheduled for Saturday, August 29.

The other events we had planned for this summer were also not held because of the pandemic and the fact that there were too many variables that could easily put the health of the public at risk, including the six-foot social distancing requirement as well as restrictions on group size.   

“As we all slowly emerge from the imposed hibernation that has recently shaped our lives, the last thing we want to do is undermine whatever progress we have made in containing COVID 19 by extending its current life because of imprudent decisions,” said Don Loprieno, President, Friends of Colonial Pemaquid. “We thank all of our supporters for their membership and ongoing interest in our educational programs as well as for their patience and understanding during these difficult times.”

As we hope for better days ahead, we urge everyone to be careful and safe not only for their own health but also for the health of others. For additional information, please visit or email

1:00 and 3:00PM.

Rain date is Sunday, August 30
