Eastham’s Big Weekend
Windmill Weekend returns after a two-year Covid break, and the fun starts with a chicken and fish fry on Friday, Sept. 9 at the Elks Lodge at 1 McKoy Road. The festival ends Sunday, Sept. 11 after a parade and a live performance by Eastham’s own American Idol contestant and native Natalia Bonfini.
Highlights include the Saturday, Sept. 10 craft fair at the Windmill Green from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., according to the festival organizers’ announcement. A classic car display runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Elks Lodge. Young kids (and adult kids) are invited to the Great Tricycle Race at 2 p.m. on Depot Road by the Windmill. And, new this year, a beer and wine garden for those 21 and older, from noon to 4 p.m. on the Windmill Green.
On Sunday, the parade begins at noon. Its theme: “Once Upon a Time.” Bonfini’s performance will close out the festival weekend at 2 p.m. on the Windmill Green.
Free parking and a complimentary shuttle service will be offered on both Saturday and Sunday with stops at First Encounter Beach, the Windmill Green, and the Elks Lodge.
Windmill Weekend has a scholarship fund. This year, event organizers aim to raise $3,000 to be awarded to local high school seniors.
