2017 West Barnstable Village Festival

August 19, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

BARS at 2016 West Barnstable Village Festival
The annual West Barnstable Village Festival will take place on Saturday, August 19th and BARS will be there with its extensive booth. We’ll be serving chowder, grilled clams, and there will be a raw bar set up. BARS will also be selling t-shirts, polo shirts, and hats with the new BARS-Cape Cod logo.

In its 27th year, the festival includes a classic car show, crafters and artisans, live music, horse-drawn carriage rides, a flower show and lots of children’s activities.

The village’s landmark historic train station plays a big part in the festival, with discounted train rides, presentations and tours of the train museum. Built in 1911, the station is open on Saturdays from May to October with scenic train rides to the canal and back that take about an hour and 10 minutes.

Whelden Memorial Library will again be participating in the festival, with a “Donut Diner” on the front lawn starting at 9 a.m. that will also serve lunch all afternoon, a bake sale inside and a coloring table and crafts for children.

The West Barnstable Fire Station will host an open house from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with tours of the station and trucks on display, and will bring its popular “Kids’ Foam Frolic” to Luke’s Love Playground at 2:30 p.m.

Nearby Meetinghouse Farm holds its annual Art at the Farm event in conjunction with the village festival, with artists and craftspeople on site, music by Toast and Jam, children’s crafts and a silent auction.

This year, Meetinghouse Farm is offering something new: its first annual Litter Sculpture competition. To enter, visit meetinghousefarm.org, where details will be posted starting Aug. 1.
