Come join us for this annual festival on historic Bowen’ Wharf which is a celebration of seafood and the harvest of the sea. Named one of the “10 Fabulous Fall Festivals on the Coast,” by Coastal Living Magazine, this event is a chance to experience fresh, local seafood, signature cocktails and cold Whaler’s Brewing beer along with continuous live music, and family fun, all beneath the Wharf’s colorful tents.
We’ll have the best seats on the Wharf and will be serving up our most celebrated seafood dishes. It’s one of the most fun weekends of the fall season. Join us!
