Cape Cod festivals are a hallmark of New England, and one such festival that’s sure to please during Cape Cod Vacations in September is the Bourne Scallop Festival.
Year after year the Scallop Fest has been the recipient of a “Best Festival” award from Cape Cod Life Magazine. Not only does the festival celebrate succulent scallops, but also offers live music, local wine and beer, an arts and crafts fair and lots of rides and games.
Held this year – September 20-22, 2013 – the Scallop Fest is definitely one of the most highly anticipate Cape Cod festivals of the season.
For nearly a half century, ScallopFest has welcomed generations of locals and vacations to Buzzards Bay Park, on the scenic banks of the Cape Cod Canal, with three days of food and fun for the whole family.
In addition to the festival’s famous scallop and herb-roasted chicken dinners, there’s a food court with raw bar, midway with rides, a juried craft show, kids games and activities, and live entertainment.
