Ropefest 2020


Ropefest is an annual event put on for the public in New Bedford, Massachusetts at our warehouse. 

The tentative date for next year is Saturday April 25th, 2020.

Everyone’s favorite part of Ropefest is our warehouse wide sale with discounts ranging from 20%-40% off.

However in additional to great deals on rope and hardware there are local vendors, activities, raffles, a band and a food truck.

Check out 2019’s event schedule and vendor list below for an idea of what Ropefest is all about. You can also view one of our Ropefest videos at the bottom of this page.
