Working Waterfront Festival Sept. 28 and 29, 2013
Maybe pushing the limits of New England Gardening but this festival is heartily recommended by the farmer at my local farmer's market (he has a booth there every year). I haven't gone myself yet.
"Join us in New Bedford, America's largest commercial fishing port, to learn about the men and women who harvest the North Atlantic. Walk the decks of a scalloper, dine on fresh seafood, see fishermen's contests, and watch a cooking demonstrations. Experience the workings of the industry which brings seafood from the ocean to your plate."
