Event of the Week: Mattapoisett Harbor Days

The Mattapoisett Lions Club will again host Harbor Days at Shipyard Park in Mattapoisett, Massachusetts, this weekend (July 20-21).

Harbor Days is a celebration of summer and life on the South Coast, and is a great place to view and purchase photography, jewelry, paintings, framed charts, hand-carved birds, wind chimes, foods, spices, bags, clothing and other unique arts and crafts items made by local artists.

Live bands perform throughout the event, and there are burgers, hot dogs, churico, strawberry shortcake, and more at the Lions Club tent.

Kids can climb aboard one of the town’s fire trucks or take a harbor cruise aboard the Mattapoisett Boat Yard launch.

Boaters wishing to attend Harbor Days can tie up to the town floats for a short time while they grab something to eat or drink, or to drop off passengers.

The accompanying New England Boating feature will give you all the information you need to enjoy a visit by water to Mattapoisett. New England Boating: Focus on Mattapoisett, MA.
