The history of the Strawberry Festival can be traced back to an article in The Advocate of June, 1912, making this event the 103rd celebration of a Wellfleet tradition. Old-fashioned strawberry shortcake will be served at this family-friendly event. Music will be provided by the 'Back of the House' Celtic session players. Other session players are invited to bring their instruments and join the session on tunes familiar to them. Dancing is encouraged! The proceeds of the Strawberry Festival will be used to renovate the newly-purchased middle section of the Wellfleet Historical Society and Museum. The restoration of the facade of the building will greatly improve the historic appearance of Wellfleet's Main Street. This acquisition nearly doubles the total space of the museum, giving the Historical Society room to archive and protect its collections, and exhibition space to bring to life the story of Wellfleet's remarkable people.

We're thrilled to have this wildly talented duo from Boston back in the house for their second appearance at the Hall...this time with local musician Gabriel Morton opening the show, a rising star right here on the Cape! "Folk" has become a funny label for Tall Heights. It felt right when they went all-in on a career in music, street performing over 100 days in 6 months to fund their first recordings. It felt right when their plucky single, "To Be Young," worked its way into the hearts of their hometown, Boston MA, and spread to the nation on Pandora and Spotify. It felt right when they played 300+ shows in '13 and '14 all across the United States. However, with the Spring '15 release of live singles "Spirit Cold" and "Horse to Water," Tall Heights stays true to their harmony, cello and guitar laden souls, while creating something brand new.
