Cape Cod Scallop Fest
What started as a gathering of scallop fisherman has grown over its 48 years to become one of the Northeast’s most beloved summer festivals. At the center of it all are the Festival’s homemade scallop dinners – and dinner here starts at 11am! Those who aren’t fans of scallops can also choose a delicious herb-roasted chicken dinner, or snack their way through a number of traditional concession stands.
Visitors can weave their way through the juried arts and crafts show to check out wares made by local artisans – the perfect way to digest all those scallops before hitting the Midway. Kids of all ages can go for a spin on the Mixer or take in the view from the top of the ferris wheel. And be sure to stop by the main stage to see who is performing – entertainment will be happening all weekend long.
The festival runs from September 22 through 24, with gates opening at 11 AM each morning. Admission is $7 per adult, $2 for kids 6-12. Under fives get in free.
