2014 Wellfleet OysterFest

The fourteenth annual Wellfleet OysterFest will take place the weekend after Columbus Day, Saturday and Sunday, October 18 & 19, 2014 from 10am until 5pm in Wellfleet, Cape Cod, Massachusetts. This two-day family festival celebrates the town's famous oysters, clams and shellfishing traditions bringing together locals and visitors alike for a weekend full of hometown flavor and big time fun! There is something for everyone: local cuisine, arts and crafts, educational programs, cooking demonstrations, children's activities, walking tours, live music, a road race, and the annual Oyster Shuck-Off competition.

Visit our www.wellfleetoysterfest.org as the event draws near for a full schedule of activities.

The 'Fest is produced by Wellfleet Shellfish Promotion and Tasting, Inc. (SPAT), a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization devoted to fostering a greater understanding of the town's shellfishing industry, to preserve its history and traditions and protect its harbor, aquaculture and wild fisheries. The event is made possible through collaboration with the Town of Wellfleet, the support of many generous area businesses and shellfishermen, a dedicated group of volunteers and, most importantly, the weekend's enthusiastic attendees.

Last year an estimated 25,000 people walked through festival entrances paying a nominal admission fee for the first time ever! This comes from an effort to keep the event safe and sustainable for years to come. Proceeds from the ‘Fest fund SPAT’s educational mission including a local college scholarship program, community grant awards and initiatives to help the shellfishing industry. To date, SPAT has given back more than $175,000 to the local community.

Class of 2004 Ten Year Reunion

To the Class of 2004! Hello! It's us, your devoted and esteemed student council. Did you miss us?!

It’s hard to believe, but we’ve finally hit the ten-year high school graduation mark! SO let’s celebrate, reminisce, catch up...and pretend like we don't already know everything about everyone, because we saw it on Facebook.

Although we toyed with the idea of hosting our reunion in one of our parent’s basements…for old times sake…your class officers have decided to upgrade. We are almost 30 years old. Yikes. We’ve booked the Wellfleet Preservation Hall for Saturday, November 29 from 6 pm – 10 pm. Non-school sponsored after parties are encouraged and expected.

Leave it to your class officers to take care of the entertainment, food, cash bar, and maybe a few other surprises. All YOU need to do is buy the super cheap ticket ($25), make your travel arrangements, and spread the word!!

The more people we get to pay and commit to attending (the earlier the better!), the more we are able to do for our 10 year reunion! Sooooo start clicking and get your ticket NOW! Spouses, significant others, and hog cats are all welcome!

 See you there :)

Bright New Stars: Tenzin Chopak w/Grand Public

 Our Bright New Stars live music series showcases young and/or emerging artrists from the Northeast region. These talented folks might be tough to find out about otherwsie - so consider Prez Hall your source for some of the best new and independent music out there!

Tonight's feature is Tenzin Chopak (vocals, guitar, piano), an artist and songwriter based in Ithaca, NY. The son of a minister and an artist, Tenzin learned to love music in his father's church in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. He studied voice, piano, and guitar throughout his childhood, performing his original music frequently while dreaming of making it a full time profession. In 1999, after some years of a burgeoning devotion to the study of Tibetan language and religion, he traveled to North India. It was during his eight month stay there that he was given the name "Tenzin Chopak". For the following twelve years, while continuing his study of Tibetan in upstate, NY, Tenzin kept music a quiet if not hidden part of his life. In late 2011 he began to write and perform publicly again, and formed the band Rockwood Ferry who has since released 2 albums and performed extensively.

 Tenzin presents his work beyond genre with something akin to pure theater, evoking the primal feeling and texture of universality that is present in roots traditions, yet with a charged vulnerability and intimacy in both his dynamic musicality and elegant lyricism.

 Reviewers have referred to his music as "progressive chamber folk", while audiences and critics have praised performances as "incandescent", "mesmerizing", "transcendent", and "stunningly beautiful".
