Riverfest returns to Mystic Seaport Museum

Mystic Seaport Museum kicks off summer early with Riverfest on Saturday and Sunday, June 1–2! There will be many activities to satisfy curiosities and adventurous spirits over this two-day event. Visitors will be able to tour visiting fishing vessels docked at the Museum and immerse themselves in special historical demonstrations like cod fishing, open-hearth cooking, and sail handling aboard historic vessels. Enjoy local seafood and beverages while listening to live music by the Mystic River. Shop at a variety of artisan vendor booths, and peruse the newest exhibitions: Entwined: Freedom, Sovereignty, and the Sea and Spineless: A Glass Menagerie of Blaschka Marine Invertebrates. The Museum Boathouse will also be open, allowing visitors a chance to spend time out on the water with a captained boat ride or on their own in a sailboat, rowboat, or pedal boat.

This event is free for Members and included in general admission for non-members.
