Honoring the “harvest of the sea,” the Bowen’s Wharf Seafood Festival offers copious amounts of seafood, continuous live music, and family fun, all beneath the wharf’s colorful tents.

Spirits and soft drinks are available. Desserts include tempting pies, ciders, and other baked goods. Café-style seating is set up throughout the wharf. As you fill your bellies with fresh dishes, sit back and enjoy the beats from area bands. Under the music tent, live music — folk, Celtic, sea shanties and blues — are just a taste of what you’ll hear. Bring your dancing shoes, because these bands promise to get your feet moving!
