Attended by almost 30,000 people each year, the Seafood Festival is a major part of the weekend event.
The Festival, which runs Friday night, Saturday and Saturday night, features a wide variety of culinary delights from the sea (and quite a few from the shore as well). Beer and wine are available for adults, as well as soft drinks and lemonade for the whole family.

Live music performed by a very popular local band provides entertainment as well as the opportunity to dance away the calories. Complete lobster dinners with all of the accompaniments, linguini with clam sauce, barbecued shrimp, a raw bar, stuffies, and much, much, more provide the basis for a great meal. There is also a large variety of entertainment for kids throughout the seafood festival. Face painting and story telling, karate demonstrations, carnival rides, and craft booths all make this a true family event for the 25,000 to 30,000 people who attend each year. A delicious harvest of seafood and other delectables prepared in the New England tradition. Live entertainment and refreshments for parents and kids. Rides, clowns, demonstrations, craft booths, face painting, shopping and more!
