Annual Eastham Turnip Festival

November 18 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

FREE

Turnip-themed fun for all ages! Sample turnip cuisine provided by local food establishments and vote for your favorite dish. Guess the weight of the Enormous Turnip. Who can peel a turnip the fastest? Just watch those peels fly at the annual Turnip Shuck-Off! Live bluegrass music and turnip line dancing. Kids Turn Up for Fun Zone with juggler, face painting, balloon artist, temporary turnip tattoos, make & take crafts, Mr. Turnip Head decorating contest, and more.
Expanded Turnip Game Zone including Turnip Bowling and Turnip Hole (the Fest’s spin on Corn Hole) – for the young and the young at heart. Henna body art, a selection of designs including- of course – a turnip!

Think Turnip, Shop Local! With over 60 merchants, this is the largest gathering of local farmers, artisans and hand crafters on the Outer Cape. Stroll the holiday marketplace featuring locally grown fruits and vegetables, locally produced foodstuffs, unique hand crafted gift items – and of course, turnip hats, tees, cookbooks as well as the oh-so-irresistibly-sweet Eastham Turnips!

This Turnip Extravaganza is organized by the staff of the Eastham Public Library and made possible through the generous support of the Friends of the Eastham Library, Seamen’s Bank, the Cape Cod Five Savings Bank and a grant from the Eastham Cultural Council, which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Irresistible and ever-so-sweet Eastham Turnips

Aw Shucks!

 

Mr. Turnip – Cool as a cucumber, or should we say turnip!
