Shimmering Shanties

Hyannis HyArts Artist Shanties_family picnic

Support local artists and celebrate each unique village of Barnstable by visiting the Hyannis HyArt Shanties, now open for the summer season. More than 85 local artists display and sell their crafts, including art, jewelry, photography, woodworking and more. Although each individual shanty represents one of the seven villages of Barnstable, the program accepts all Cape Cod artists. This year, the shanties are decorated with a mural of images that follows a theme from their respective towns, as well as a series of photos spotlighting then-and-now images. Listen to live local music at the shanties on Saturday nights in July, August and September. —Bailey Soderberg
