Upcoming Events

The best way to explore Eagle Island Light is through one of our sponsored events. Every August, we host our much anticipated Open House. We also join forces with local land trusts, nonprofits, and ferry services to provide additional events throughout the summer season. Check back often to see our list of upcoming event, or get up-to-the-minute updates on our social media pages.

Annual Open House Countdown








Eagle Island Light Open House

August 11, 2024  |  12 – 3 pm

Bring a picnic and spread out in the meadow with family and friends. The team has been working hard to restore the interior stairs and ceilings, thanks in part to many generous donors. Come climb the classic wrought iron staircase and enjoy sweeping views of Penobscot Bay. Plus you can shop Eagle Light Caretaker “merch” – we have tees for adults and kids, baseball hats, tote bags plus a new limited-run hoodie.

Transportation is available on the Katherine Mailboat or come by your own boat and anchor off the lighthouse beach and follow signs to the top.

Contact the Katherine Mailboat to reserve a seat: (207) 701-9316
