2023 Homecoming is Canceled Due to Hurricane Lee.
Ticket holders have a few options. You can request a refund, or you can choose to donate your ticket fee to Chewonki.

Dear Alumni & Friends,
I’m very sad to share that we have made the challenging decision to cancel our 2023 Homecoming event due to Hurricane Lee.
While the current forecast is still uncertain, there’s a strong chance that Hurricane Lee will impact Maine on Saturday. Category 1 hurricane conditions can include several inches of rain and winds from 74-95 mph. Maine rarely experiences hurricane-force winds, and this storm’s potential requires significant advance preparation–like removing tents, moving dozens of boats, buttoning up buildings and yurts, and more. Our facilities team and other staff members have been redirected to accomplish this work.
Ticket holders have a few options. You can request a refund or you can choose to donate your ticket fee to Chewonki. Please feel out this google form to let us know your decision.
I understand that many of you will be disappointed to hear this news – especially those who planned to travel to the event. Our team has put a lot of energy into making Homecoming a wonderful event, and we feel deeply disappointed as well. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this cancellation may cause you and your guests.
The silver lining is that, from the beginning, we imagined Homecoming would become an annual event. We will announce dates for 2024 Homecoming soon.
Thanks for your understanding.
