Festivals serve an important purpose. They are an annual opportunity to celebrate the abundance and showcase the uniqueness of our community. The South Coast is a region that has plenty to be proud of and even more to be thankful for.
There are more than a few festivals that highlight the talented fishermen and women that work our waters as well as the fruit of their labor. The Bourne Scallop Fest has been going strong for decades. 44 years ago this September a small group of fishermen thought the event might attract more tourists to the area and now the festival hosts thousands of guests. Fittingly, some of the proceeds go to support the areas two visitor centers! On its heels comes the Working Waterfront Festival in New Bedford where you can join in celebrating the New England commercial fishing industry. Ship tours and maritime artisans make this event distinctive. If you still haven’t had your fill of festas, attend the New Bedford Seaport Chowder Festival in October. Area restaurants will be competing for your votes for best seafood chowder, stuffed quahog, kale soup and more.
The South Coast also offers numerous chances to show your gratitude for the land’s harvest as well as the sea’s. Silverbrook Farm kicks off the harvest season in late September with the opening day of their season long Silverbrook Farm Harvest Festival. Every weekend through October guests can take their pick of activities including farm demonstrations, face painting and tractor rides. New Bedford brings the age old tradition of Germany’s Oktoberfest to our South Coast shores with the New Bedford Oktoberfest. Food and live music will enhance the celebration of this 8th annual event. Mark the area’s cranberry harvest at the Cranberry Harvest Celebration in Wareham this October. Taking a day to be thankful for this delectable fruit will make that cranberry relish even more tasty come Thanksgiving!
No matter which festivals you choose to enjoy or what you plan on celebrating, don’t forget to be thankful for all the abundance in your life and your community. Happy harvest!
