2011 Eastham Turnip Festival - November 19

The annual Eastham Turnip Festival will be held this year on Saturday, November 19th. There will be judged dishes (turnips, of course) and games and activities for all ages. Bring a few bucks for tee-shirts, arts & crafts, and, of course, for Eastham turnips. This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Eastham Library. The festivities start at 1 PM at the Nauset Regional High School on Cable Rd.

There isn't much written about the Eastham turnip, but the Edible Cape Cod blog ran a story a few years ago about the turnip and about Art Nickerson, who grew these turnips for decades. Check out the article on the Edible Cape Cod blog.
