New Bedford, Massachusetts
Fisherman’s Wharf/Pier 3 — Steamship Pier

The Working Waterfront Festival is presented free of charge 

Join us in New Bedford, America’s largest commercial fishing port, to learn about the men and women who harvest the North Atlantic. Walk the decks of a scalloper, dine on fresh seafood, mend a fishing net and watch a Coast Guard rescue demonstration. Experience the workings of the industry which brings seafood from the ocean to your plate.Meet Captains Phil Harris and Johnathan Hillstrand from the Deadliest Catch!

Discovery Channel’s Emmy-nominated series Deadliest Catch thrust commercial fishing into the national spotlight. For the first time ever, viewers had a window into the real life adventures of those who fish the Bering Sea. The show follows the captains and their eight-man crews as they struggle against treacherous weather conditions doing one of the deadliest—and most lucrative—jobs in the world.

The 2007 Working Waterfront Festival is thrilled to present Captains Phil Harris and Johnathan Hillstrand who are featured on the show. Look for them on the Festival’s Main Stage at 5:00 p.m. Saturday, September 22nd for an informal Q & A followed by autograph signing.
