I’m not sure that it’s the Best Annual Festival In All of New England or Even Gloucester But It Sure As Hell Beats The Heck Out of It’s Competition In The List of Nominations
Here are your nominees-
Cape Ann Artisans Studio Tour – Cape Ann, MA
Lowell Folk Festival – Lowell, MA
Maine Whoopie Pie Festival – Dover-Foxcroft, ME
Sea Music Festival – Mystic, CT
Six Flags New England Fright Fest – Agawam, MA
Seems like a kinda random list, no????
No Rockland Lobster Festival? No Big E? No Topsfield Fair? No Newport Jazz Festival? No Hemp Festival on the Boston Common? No King Richard’s Faire? No Saint Peter’s Fiesta? But You Have The Very Prestigious Maine Whoopie Pie Festival?
Anyway, if we’re basing it just off of these choices it’s obviously The Cape Ann Artisans Studio Tour. No Brainer. Support Our Artists (and Artisans)
You can vote here-
The Cape Ann Artisans Tour Is A Must Do Event Every Year For Shizzy.
It’s funny when we were having the discussion with the people from the mass Cultural Council as to whether Downtown Gloucester deserves to be designated a Cultural district one of the things I brought up was our ridiculous number of Cultural events to attend here in GTown.
and that’s why I find it funny that the Cape Ann Artisans Tour is nominated in this category. Because in many other communities The Cape Ann Artisans Tour would be their number one event of the year, hands down no contest. But because we are so spoiled here we have monster events just about every other week and sometimes multiples in one week that would blow all of the other nominations out of the water.
It’s in no way shape or form a slight to The Incredible Cape Ann Artisans Tour. It’s just a testament to how insanely rich we are with community organizations that band together and put on incredible annual events that we get to enjoy.
So vote and bring home yet another feather in the Cultural Cap of Gloucester.
