Heritage Days

About Heritage Days

Each year, with the help of many volunteers, the Scituate Chamber of Commerce proudly presents Scituate Heritage Days. The annual event combines live music and entertainment, artisan crafts, kid’s activities and historical site visits for one of the South Shore’s biggest and most anticipated outdoor events of the summer.

During the weekend, visitors can enjoy many events, activities, and music venues that Scituate Heritage Days has become famous for.

In addition to the many vendors at Heritage Days, Scituate Harbor boasts many retail shops, businesses and restaurants. You can find nautical and whimsical gifts shops along with stylish retail clothing stores. Some of the restaurants feature outdoor casual seating where you can enjoy the spectacular views of Scituate Harbor.
