First Annual Herring Run Festival

Saturday, April 26, 2014 - 11:00am to 4:00pm

Every April tens of thousands of herring leave the ocean to head upstream to lay their eggs in freshwater. Most of the herring that migrate through Town Brook are a variety known as alewives, which Native Wampanoag have been using as food and fertilizer for centuries. Back in 1621 the Wampanoag people shared this knowledge with the Pilgrims.Features include special hands-on activities for kids, live music, a local artisan marketplace, and the grist mill will be grinding organic cornmeal and sampe (grits) and sharing samples of crowd-favorite corn dishes.
