The annual Rockport HarvestFest celebration features the best of the season in a quintessential coastal New England setting, offering live music, great food, and plenty of activities for families.
New England food producers gather under a giant tent on one of Rockport’s historic working wharves to celebrate the best of local food with fresh seafood, pastries, cider doughnuts, chowder, small-batch jams, jellies and chocolates, locally-grown produce and more.
HarvestFest also features plenty of live bluegrass, jazz, folk and Celtic music, along with the annual Scarecrow Stroll, where artistic, creative, and generally fascinating scarecrows can be found throughout downtown. Several Rockport inns, shops, restaurants and galleries offer HarvestFest specials and packages.
This year’s HarvestFest takes place from 9 AM to 6 PM on Saturday, October 15, 2016.
