The Annual Scallop Fest is a long-time tradition first started in the Town of Bourne in 1969 and moving to East Falmouth in 2014. Patrons from all over the country stay at nearby lodging facilities, shop at stores, and dine at nearby restaurants.
The Annual Scallop Fest is an economic development bonanza for the canal region. The Fest increases tourism and creates employment opportunities for hundreds of local people..
The people we employ supplement the 500 volunteers who help manage the Fest over the weekend, including the Barnstable County Sheriff’s Office that helps set up and breakdown the grounds.
