12 years and counting! Join the Salem YMCA, Creative Salem and The Lobster Shanty for our annual fundraiser & block party! Not only is this a celebration and fundraiser for this important nonprofit, it is also a little taste of Salem! 

In addition to the incredible treats and libations available all day the Lobster Shanty, some of our local friends are coming down to support the YMCA. Late night cookie experts Goodnight Fatty will be joining forces with Melt Ice Cream for the best Cookies and Ice Cream you have ever had! Deacon Giles Distillery will be on the row with the hottest pop up experience in town - Speakeasy Donuts, for a Tiki Bar like no other. 

The gang from Bambolina with return this year with their incredible pizza,North Shore Bartenders will be operating an honest to goodness bar on Artist’s Row (The Shanty also has their full bar available) and Koto will be bringing some quick and easy take-away options, including pot stickers and Lo Mein. 

We are working on some exciting announcements about the band performances, but we have DJ Seth Upsidemedia, LLC spinning tunes and taking suggestions all day! There will also be a special surprise flash mob and a communal interactive belly dancing demonstration with the Mona Shoola Dance Ensemble.

Also this year we are expanding activities for the little ones as we activate Derby Square with a KIDS ZONE and welcome local caricature artist Josh Magruda. 

As always, we will also be adding special surprises leading up to, and during, the event - including the giant lobster raffle, an amazing array of raffle prizes, special treats, and more.
