The third annual Shadfest hits Fishtown next week, and as Shad fever takes over, we begin to wonder: What if Fishtown had been called Shadtown?
What exactly is Shadfest? Well, this pretty much explains it. This year's Shadfest is on April 23, but there are a couple of events leading up to the fishiest event in Fishtown, so why not make a week of it?
It all starts with the Fishtown Fishing Derby on Saturday, April 16, followed by an Easter Egg Hunt, at Penn Treaty Park. April 16 - 23 is the Official Shadweek, with a fundraiser for Delaware Bay Oyster Happy Hour at Johnny Brenda's on April 19, and ShadQuizzo at the Starboard Side Tavern on April 21.
Have you ever tried Shad?
