A free celebration of commercial fishing culture in New Bedford, MA, the #1 Fishing Port in the Country
Through exhibits, demonstrations, walking tours, dockside vessel tours, author readings, and performances, the event showcases industry skills, fisheries science, and sustainable seafood. A display of model fishing boats complements the Center’s fall exhibit F/V Innovation chronicling the history of vessels and gear and honoring the contributions of local industry innovators.
Activities take place in and around the New Bedford Fishing Heritage Center (38 Bethel Street) and on Steamship Pier (walking and vessel tours) and City Pier 3 (harbor tours) from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. A free shuttle will run in a loop between the Center and the waterfront.
