Fisherman’s Feast at North, Lewis & Fleet Streets [ALSO on Friday, Saturday and Sunday – August 13-15th]
The Fisherman’s Feast is an annual event that began in Boston in 1910 and is based on a tradition that goes back to the 16th century in Sciacca Sicily. The Feast is based on the devotion of the fishermen from Sciacca to the Madonna del Soccorso (Our Lady of Help). When the fishermen immigrated to America in the early 1900’s, they brought their traditions with them. Today’s Feast is much the same as it was over 100 years ago with lights adorning the street and the smell of sausage in the air. For more information on the Fisherman’s Feast, visit FishermansFeast
