Cape Cod Scallop Fest, held September 22-24 9Friday-Sunday) at Cape Cod Fairgrounds in East Falmouth, celebrates the bounty of Cape Cod's seas.

Hungry attendees can also feast on roasted chicken clam chowder, lobster rolls, and fried dough, too. A beer and wine garden, juried arts and crafts sale, and rides & games for the kiddos complete the fun.
