We look forward to the cultural alliance farmers market and craft events. We go each year in September so we are blessed by produce along with the seafood offerings, also so many talented islanders displaying their wares.

Thank you for your kind review! The CCA works very hard to bring creative and valuable events to our island. We hope to see you at another one soon!

This organization works to add events that enhance community esprit d'corp. to be sure it is welcomed by many folk in many ways. Also good adaptive reuse of an old building that is agreeably vernacular.

Our group of 22 had a wonderful seafood dinner with a crab picken, when we gathered at this building. The music as provided by a local person who played delightful sea shanties. The art work of the seascapes and oyster-men was beautiful, too.
