America's Oldest Seap

Established in 1623 on the shores of Massachusetts, this city has strong ties to the sea and owes its early prosperity to the fisheries and water based trade that was so vital to our fledgling country. While other major settlements immediately began farming and agricultural production once they were established, the rocky hills and poor soil Gloucester meant that the people here had to look elsewhere for sustenance and livelihoods. To this day, fishing is still a big part of this town’s identity. The Fisherman’s Memorial Statue in the center of town commemorates those who have been lost at sea.

Art Culture in Glouce

With the longest continually operating art colony in America, Gloucester has some beautiful artifacts from the early days of the country’s history, along with carefully crafted works of art on display throughout the city. The Rocky Neck Art Colony is chalk full of galleries, bars, and restaurants, all proudly displaying works from local artists, painters, and sculptors. These artisans draw their inspiration from the sea, much like the fishermen who rely on it for their livelihoods, and paintings of rocky shores, foggy inlets, and ships at moor are popular subjects for native artists to explore.

St. Peter's Fiesta

There are many things to do and see in Gloucester, from the bohemian artist’s colony to the historic village and iconic statues. However, every year, the largest draw for locals and tourists is the St. Peter’s Fiesta celebration. Held the last weekend in June by the largely Italian-American population, this festival comes on the heels of the Saint’s Feast Day, and has events such as the blessing of the fleet and the greasy pole contest. There are all the accouterments of your typical citywide festival, such as delicious local food stalls, arts and crafts from the community, and games for the little ones to play.
