Sept. 27-29 Working Waterfront Festival opens doors to New Bedford fishing industry – event offers ‘window into the world’ of commercial fishing

sct logoNEW BEDFORD — In two weeks, the harbor will swarm with locals and tourists alike hoping to learn more about the fishing industry. They will see life rafts inflated in an instant, watch scallopers shucking and touch whole, live monkfish for the first time with their bare hands. The Working Waterfront Festival is expected to be a weekend of fun for the whole family, but local fishermen say it is also their annual opportunity to show non-fishermen what they’re made of.
