Sunday, April 26 is the 18th Annual Dirty Dan Harris Festival – Fairhaven’s celebration of the “unscrubbed” community founder, Dirty Dan Harris.
Live music and food and street vendors take place on the Fairhaven Village Green between 10am and 5pm. This year’s festivities will feature family-fun activities including a salmon toss for adults & kids, The Rocket Donuts donut eating contest, and the legendary Dirty Dan look-a-like & 1800’s dress contests. Sign up for these contests on the day of the event at the Village Green stage in a first come basis.
10 a.m. is the Dan Harris Challenge Rowing Race at Marine Park replicating the cross-border rum-rowing adventures of Dan Harris.
At before “high noon” you won’t want to miss the always exciting uphill piano race! We suggest you get there about 15 minutes early to secure a good viewing place along Harris Ave near 10th St. You don’t want to miss it!
After the race, swagger over to the Dirty Dan Sidewalk Saloon – open from noon to 5 p.m. next to the Village Green on 10th St.
Come in costume or come as you are!
