The 87th annual Fisherman’s Fair will be held on Saturday, August 10

Shucks, It’s That Time Again




It’s been a cornerstone of the summer in Springs for almost 90 years, and now the Fisherman’s Fair is back with everyone’s favorites and a new contest, to boot.

The 87th annual Fisherman’s Fair will be held on Saturday, August 10, from 10 AM to 3 PM at Ashawagh Hall, at the corner of Springs Fireplace Road and Old Stone Highway.

This old-fashioned country fair, which offers up local food and craft vendors, flowers and plants for sale, a children’s area with games and things to do, and, of course, the famous clam pie, is hosting its first ever clam shucking contest. Entry forms, rules, and info for the contest are available by calling Terry O’Riordan at 631-905-2490, or emailing tponytail07@aol.com.

Local musicians will be providing tunes throughout the day. Count on the restaurant raffle, Springs Improvement Society posters for sale, and the Springs Artists Invitational exhibition inside Ashawagh Hall.

Proceeds from the fundraising events goes to the maintenance of the hall by the SIS, and to the society’s scholarship program. For more info, visit www.fishermansfair.com.
