Reserve June 12th for the Wellfleet Harborfest

Pearl looks positively bleak in winter. Nobody hanging out in the marina parking lot except for a few dozen seagulls. But the place will be hopping come early June. The Wellfleet Harborfest committee has just announced details of the first Annual Wellfleet Community Harborfest, a gala event to take place on the pier Saturday, June 11, 2011 from 9 A.M. to 4 P.M. Harborfest seeks to promote boating, fishing and nautical activities. This new festival will inaugurate the summer season and showcase what Wellfleet has to offer as a waterfront community.

Harborfest is to include the following:
• A nautical flea market
• Food Vendors promoting local seafood (think oysters!)
• Educational and informational exhibits pertaining to the harbor
• Recreational and nautical related activities.

Exhibitors will be provided with a 10 by 10 foot space. All exhibitors must supply their own set-up materials. There is no charge involved but any donation, big or small to Wellfleet Harborfest, will be appreciated.

If you are interested in participation or volunteering in some way, contact Paul Pilcher ( or Martha Wilson ( prior to March 1. Paul is also accepting phone calls (508-349-5114). Exhibits should have a relationship to the harbor or marina. Starting a new event is not an easy undertaking, so please spread the word and plan to attend Wellfleet Community Harborfest this coming June!
