StriperFest is the biggest fishing party on the East Coast. Over a late summer weekend, thousands of fishermen and their friends and family come to Cape Cod to take boat demo rides, check out the sponsors’ displays, eat, drink and enjoy live music. Way more than just an awards ceremony for The Striper Cup, it’s the season-capping event of the year for striped bass fishermen.
Please note that StriperFest is a no-smoking venue and there are no pets allowed (with the exception of service animals specifically trained to help people who have disabilities).
StriperFest is held in On The Water’s hometown: the historic Cape Cod town of Falmouth, MA. Located right on Vineyard Sound, it’s the perfect location to celebrate a great season of fishing for striped bass and party on the waterfront at Falmouth Harbor. The Upper Cape is surrounded by world-class fall fishing, so don’t forget to bring your gear and plan to stay awhile. Falmouth offers something for the whole family, with great shopping, dining and nightlife. Take the ferry from Falmouth Harbor to Martha’s Vineyard, or check out the aquarium at nearby Woods Hole. Mark your calendars now for a fun-filled weekend!
