The Wellfleet Chamber has begun prepping to "Celebrate Wellfleet's Workers" at the Labor Day parade! We hope that you will come out as participants and spectators, and join us in celebrating the important contributions our workers and laborers lend to the strength, prosperity and character of our small community, all year long.

On Saturday, September 4, 2021, the Antique Car Parade will start at 9:30am followed by the Float Parade at 10:00am. The Parade route starts at the Wellfleet Town Pier, runs up Holbrook Avenue, turns right on Main Street, continues up Main Street, turns right on East Commercial Street, and ends where it began at the harbor. The Judge's stand will be located on the lawn of the Town Hall.
