Welcome aboard as New Bedford, America’s largest commercial fishing port, hosts the 6th Working Waterfront Festival, a celebration of commercial fishing culture.
More than simply a celebration, the Working Waterfront Festival is a unique opportunity for the public to get a firsthand look at the culture of fishing and for the commercial fishing community to tell its own story. The event presents all that goes into bringing seafood from the ocean to the table in a way that is hands-on, educational and fun. Visitors are encouraged to listen and watch, but also to taste, touch and converse. The FREE festival takes place Saturday and Sunday, September 26th and 27th on the working piers and waterfront parks of the Port of New Bedford. Free parking is available at the City’s Elm Street Garage. (more…)
