Complete List of 2017 Shanty Artists

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 having 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.
