Cods of a Different Color Online Auction- Thank You!

Our Cods of a Different Color auction was again a fabulous success—for the third year in a row!  This popular month-long event showcased 54 individually handcrafted artful codfish, which were exhibited in business locations throughout Marblehead and displayed in an exciting online auction that ended after the fireworks on July 4.  We are thrilled that all 54 cods were caught at the end of the Festival weekend by so many happy winning bidders!

Without the generous support of our artists, merchant hosts, and the Marblehead community, the 2017 cod exhibition and online auction would never have been so successful.  The funds raised by this codfish event, totaling $12,678, will help support future Marblehead Festival of Arts programs and scholarships for years to come.  We would like to thank the following artists and businesses for their generous support:
