Mahone Bay & Indian Point Mussel Festival, May 21-23
Get ready for a great weekend of mussel tasting, wine sipping and all things mussels. The fourth annual Indian Point/Mahone Bay Mussel Festival will take place May 21, 22 & 23 in Mahone Bay and at the Indian Point Marine Farm in Indian Point. Described as a spring celebration of local mussels and wine, the festival offers tours of the Indian Point Mussel farm, wine tasting by local wineries, a myriad of mussel dishes served up in the local restaurants, story telling and music.
The festival aims to encourage the enjoyment of our various local and seasonal food traditions. “There is a long, rich history here of making a living from the sea. We want to celebrate that and keep in touch with it – even as it changes…the goal here is to eat, drink and marvel at mussels.
