Kick off summer with boats, beer, music, and oysters at Riverfest!

Visiting fishing and oyster vessels are docking at the Seaport once again to educate about the industry’s current sustainable practices. Enjoy local oysters and check out a variety of special historical demonstrations like sail handling aboard historic vessels, cod fishing, and cooking oysters on an open hearth. Explore the undersea world in our latest exhibition, Oceanus, and learn about the last trap family in Fish & Forrest. Kick back with a tasty beverage on the waterfront while listening to music on the new performance stage. Want to spend some time out on the water? Enjoy a captained boat ride or take out a sailboat or rowboat! And be on the lookout for giveaways to commemorate the Henry du Pont Preservation Shipyard!

Most activities included with general admission and free for members. Tickets purchased online for Riverfest are valid for both days of the event.
