Riverfest at Mystic Seaport Museum

October 8 - October 10

Get in the fall spirit at Riverfest! Visit Mystic Seaport Museum October 8-10 to create lasting fall memories amongst the changing leaves, and venture onto the river in a rowboat, sailboat, pedalboat, or captained boat. Kick back with some tasty brews and delicious food at our Riverfest Beer Garden at Spouter Tavern and enjoy live music all three days. Several fishing boats and their crews will be docking with us over the course of the weekend to meet visitors and talk about oyster farming and sustainable fishing.
