The 2012 Working Waterfront Festival is being held Sept. 29-30 at the Fisherman’s Wharf/Pier 3 – Steamship Pier in New Bedford, Mass., which is America’s largest commercial fishing port. Festival-goers will have an opportunity to learn about the men and women who fish the North Atlantic.

Activities will include contests, Coast Guard demonstrations, cooking demonstrations, harbor and vessel tours, whaleboat races and rides, and music, dance and poetry performances. There will be a kids’ area, a marketplace with offerings from maritime artisans, film screenings and numerous exhibits. The festival will be held rain or shine, Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Latti & Anderson LLP will have a booth at the festival, where you can stop by and meet our attorneys and our investigator.
