The 35th Annual Yarmouth Seaside Festival will be held on October 12,13, and 14 2013.
The Yarmouth Seaside Festival was founded in 1978 by South Yarmouth resident, Jan Butler, in the hope of creating community spirit and pride in the Town of Yarmouth.
Presented annually on Columbus Day weekend, the festival is the result of a tremendous amount of hard work and dedication by a small, volunteer committee. It is through their diligence that the festival has flourished.
The Yarmouth Seaside Festival has grown into a gala event which boasts a craft fair of more than 125 crafters from all over the country, food vendors with a fabulous selection of foods to sample, a giant parade, continual musical entertainment, high-quality children’s events, kayak and canoe race, 5K road race, greased pole contests, pie-eating contests, fireworks display, etc. to name just a few. We have expanded to the point where the town is bursting at its seams with more than 25,000 attending the festival yearly.
By bringing together our townspeople and tourists alike, we have captured a warm, fun-loving, and still FREE event for all to take part in and enjoy.
