Beach Festivals to Hit Up This Fall


Obviously, summer is totally the high season for all things beach. You’re off from school, everyone takes vacation from work and sets their sights on getting in as much time down the shore as possible, soaking up the hot sun, ice cream, and boardwalk rides. So when September rolls around, a sense of sadness creeps over the entire seaside town and slowly depression sneaks in as you start to panic watching all your favorite hotspots close their doors.


However, the fall is such a beautiful time to be at the beach! As I mentioned in my last couple articles, it’s perfect for outdoor activities and some beach towns across the US are making the most of this and hosting some pretty cool festivals that I want to share with you. I found a list on but am listing the ones I think sound the most fun below.


Bourne Scallop Fest

Cape Cod, Massachusetts

Date: September 18 – September 20, 2015

Just $7 gets you admission to a festival offering fried scallop and herb-roasted chicken dinners (YUM!), an extensive food court, corn hole tournaments (weekend only!), arts & crafts show, face painting, inflatable rides, sand art, and live entertainment. Who wants to pack up and join me today??

I will totally be hitting up the Sea Witch Halloween & Fiddlers’ Festival this year! Throughout the weekend, enjoy a costume parade, fright walk, trick-or-treating, live music, old fashioned beach games, witch hunt, and many more fun-for-all-ages activities.
