Working Waterfront Festival 
From Saturday, September 28, 2013
To Sunday, September 29, 2013

The Working Waterfront Festival is an award-winning, family friendly event celebrating the history and culture of New England's commercial fishing industry featuring live music, children’s activities, cooking demonstrations, vessel and harbor tours, fisherman’s contests, author readings, film screenings, local seafood, festival bookstore, maritime artisans marketplace & more. The FREE festival presents all that goes into bringing seafood from the ocean to the table in a way that is hands-on, educational and fun. 
 
The 2013 Festival marks the 10 year anniversary of the event and provides us with an opportunity to consider how commercial fishing and coastal communities have changed over the past ten years and what lies ahead.  Festival programming will offer a retrospective look at the themes explored over the past decade: Sustainability; Safety at Sea; the Future of the Industry; Women in the Industry; Preservation of Ports; Fishermen & Farmers; the Cultural Mosaic of New England’s Working Ports; Tradition & Innovation; and Narrative Tradition.
