The 25th Baymen’s Seafood and Music Festival is this weekend at the Tuckerton Seaport in historic Tuckerton. Enjoy fresh clams, crabs, scallops and shrimp from the finest local seafood purveyors while listening to the sounds of down-home music: On Saturday, it’s September’s Brew and on Sunday, the Mott’s Creek Pickers.

In addition to the seafood court there is a craft beer garden. Prices for food and drink are in addition to the general admission of $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 5 to 12; children younger than 4 years plus Tuckerton Seaport members are free.

Admission includes decoy and boat building demonstrations, children’s playground and mini golf, boardwalk, and the re-created Seaport including the Tucker’s Island Lighthouse. Children will enjoy the Juggling Hoffmans, who perform from 1 to 4 p.m. both days. A gift auction for those 18 and older will be held to benefit the Seaport’s educational programs.

This Saturday, the Seaport also welcomes back its refurbished floating ambassador catboat, The Whitecap. The 33-foot sloop was designed by well-known naval architect Charles Mower as a Fisher’s Island Cutter and constructed in 1924 by Morton Johnson Boat Works in Bay Head. 

The seafood festival is from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 609-296-8868. —P.J.
