Oyster and Chowder Festival this weekend in Newport

Posted

The seventh annual Newport Oyster & Chowder Festival takes place this weekend, with two days of food, drink and live music under striped festival tents at Bowen’s Wharf. Hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday.

Enjoy oysters and chowder from local growers and vendors all weekend long. Rhode Island is home to upwards of 45 oyster farms. The flavors are distinctive to each farm, so this is your chance to savor a sampling of them in one festive atmosphere!

Oyster growers will be shucking alongside local restaurants and live music. The event is open to the public and all food will be available for purchase directly from vendors. Multiple cash bars will also be on site.
