Eastport Arts Center’s next Open Mic will be held Thursday, August 24, from 6-8 pm. The event, which has run monthly since January, has grown steadily, and each evening is a lively mix of 10-minute music and spoken word acts, with always some surprises. An array of snacks and hot beverages are provided in a casual coffeehouse-style atmosphere. Those interested in performing may sign up at the event for a slot, 10 minutes maximum; shorter acts are also very welcome. A limited number of slots for participants with special needs will be reserved for advance signup. Please send any inquiries by email to info@eastportartscenter.org. Admission and refreshments are free; donations will be gratefully accepted.
The August 24 event has been sponsored by Mike MacPhee, an Eastport-based realtor with Due East. “I believe the role that EAC plays in Eastport is one of many factors that influence people to choose this area over others,” commented MacPhee. “EAC’s multifaceted offerings to the local community are a wonderful gift to us all. I am a proud sponsor of the 2022-2023 Stage East season, and have fond memories of many events over the years. Open Mic has become a new favorite with many, and I would like to encourage their brave participation into the future.”

The Eastport Arts Center is at 36 Washington Street, Eastport, and is handicapped-accessible. EAC abides by the State of Maine CDC COVID guidelines, revisiting our policy monthly. At this time, the use of masks in our building is optional.
