15th Annual Eastham Turnip Festival

Per the Eastham Public Library:

… in a town called Eastham, not so very far away ~ just a mere rabbit’s hop and frog’s leap heading eastward down Route 6 ~ a quirky, homespun harvest celebration sprouted at the end of the 2003 growing season. The Eastham Turnip Festival sent forth deep roots, the roots held fast, and a turnip tradition blossomed. News of this Turnip Extravaganza spread from the Nickerson turnip fields to all with a hankering for an especially mild and sweet vegetable treat. And here we are in our 15th year …

Join turnip fans on Saturday November 17th to pay homage to the hometown favorite of all root vegetables ~ the Eastham Turnip! You’ll soon discover what the turnip buzz is all about!

This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Eastham Library along with Seamen’s Bank, Cape Cod Five Cents Savings Bank and the Eastham Cultural Council.
