Stroll along Hyannis Harbor and meet Cape Cod artists working and selling their art.  This year's artists work in a wide variety of media including: photography; painting (acrylics, oils, pastels, watercolors, etc.); handmade jewelry from metals, gemstones, glass, beach stones and more; ceramics; mosaics; mariner knot work; wood carving; tapestry; fiber art and much more.

Each year, this popular attraction provides a picturesque setting to view art made by both man and nature. Visitors to the Hyannis HyArts Artist Shanties can spend an afternoon at the harbor strolling the boardwalk, visiting artists, listening to live music, and even a picnic in the park. There is no fee to browse but if you enjoy fine handmade local products or giving them as gifts, it’s a terrific place to shop.
There are plenty of waterfront restaurants at the harbor and many more right along Main Street.
