Dirty Dan Harris Festival - Fairhaven’s annual celebration of the "unscrubbed" community founder, Dirty Dan Harris. Live music and food and street vendors take place on the Fairhaven Village Green between 10am and 6pm. This year’s festivities will feature family-fun activities including a fish toss for adults and kids, a donut eating contest, and the legendary Dirty Dan look-a-like and 1800's dress contests. 10am is the Dan Harris Challenge Rowing Race at Boulevard Park replicating Dan Harris's cross-border rum- rowing adventures. At "high noon" you won’t want to miss the always exciting uphill piano race! After the race, swagger over to the Dirty Dan Sidewalk Saloon - open from noon to 6pm next to the Green on 10th St. The new Chuckanut Chili Cook-Off takes place from 2-4pm. Tickets to sample the chili ($5) will cover a taste of each on hand, and a bowl of your favorite, with a piece of bread alongside. Tickets also allow for an opportunity to vote in the People’s Choice contest for best chili. Come in costume or come as you are!
