A must stop on your way to and from Hyannis Main Street and Hyannis Harbor. There are two shanty locations (Bismore Park & Harbor Overlook) steps from one another, along the Walkway-to-the-Sea.  Visitors can follow the brick wave from Main Street to Hyannis Harbor.  Stroll through the colorful seaside Hyannis HyARTS ARTIST SHANTIES to meet Cape Cod artists and artisans working and selling their handmade, hand designed or hand crafted items.
Artists and artwork varies weekly, visit often!

Work includes a variety of media, everything from ceramics, mosaics, wood turning to fiber art, paintings, jewelry, photography and more.

There is no fee to browse and of course if purchases are made it is a fabulous way to shop local and support the creative economy.

The shanties are named for the town’s seven villages and each shanty at Bismore Park features past and present images of the villages. The Harbor Overlook shanties are named for several public town beaches.
