Success! Another season behind us! Monday, Jul 28 2014 

Thanks to all of you who came out to support Abbadia Mare Festival and of course, Hammond Castle Museum!

We’d also like to thank the performers, the vendors, and of course our fabulous hard working volunteers!

We’ll get an update as soon as we can from the Castle, but we hope you and your families had a great time at Abbadia Mare – and here is a pic from last year!

Vendors coming to Abbadia Mare Festival 2014! Sunday, Jul 13 2014 

Welcome back to reading this blog and part two of the vendors that will be at Abbadia Mare Festival (http://www.abbadiamarefestival.com) this season which again is coming NEXT WEEKEND July 19th and 20th from 11 am to 5 pm each day at Hammond Castle Museum (http://www.hammondcastle.org).

This season we have 17 merchants including one demonstrator this season!  Here are the listings:

Okay, that’s all of them!  Also forgot to mention that we will be having The Corr Thieves joining us, so do come to see their show!

Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for kids ages 5 – 11 and kids ages 4 and under are FREE!  Parking is an additional $15 per vehicle and is located at Stage Fort Park also in Gloucester, MA, but a free shuttle service will be provided to and from the Castle!  You can buy your tickets when you arrive at the event!

Do know that as beautiful as Hammond Castle Museum is, it is NOT WHEELCHAIR OR STROLLER FRIENDLY due to the numerous stairs at this venue!

We hope to see you and your families and yes, you too can “Storm the Castle!”  HUZZAH!

This is part one of who is coming, I’ll try to post this Saturday evening of all the vendors coming!

We know, we’ve been rather busy at PhinnVolt Enterprises running three events this season, but this is one event NOT to be missed!

If you have never been to Hammond Castle Museum in Gloucester, MA (Hammond Castle Museum), and you love history and you live in New England – then you really should come to check it out!  This venue makes for a great backdrop to our event especially when we combine the History of the Castle along with Knights in shining armor and music from that time! frnt_towers
