Essex Annual Shad Bake

Join the 59th annual commemoration of the history and tradition of the River. The Spring ritual cooks expertly deboned American Shad and serves up the fish with sides and Lyman Orchard pie. Hot dogs and barbeque chicken will also be served if the main dish is too fishy for your palate. Listen to talks, live music and check out displays on the Connecticut River to feed your mind too.

The shad will start cooking at 3:00 PM. There will be shuttle service from Essex Town Hall and Pratt House to ease parking congestion.
