Historic Bowen’s Wharf in downtown Newport will host its annual Bowen’s Wharf Seafood Festival on Saturday, October 13 through Sunday, October 14.
Named one of the 10 Fabulous Fall Festivals on the Coast by Coastal Living Magazine (you’re about to find out why!), savor your way into Autumn with an array of fresh, local seafood including fish tacos, lobster rolls, fried calamari, oysters, signature cocktails and cold Whaler’s Brewing beer.
Sit along the harbor and enjoy live music and family fun beneath the Wharf’s festival tents. Other neighboring restaurants and fisherman’s associations offer decadent seafood dishes from lobster dinners and award-winning clam chowder to stuffed quahogs, clam cakes, shrimp, scallops and more. Indulge your sweet tooth w fresh smoothies, donuts and kettle corn among cafe-style seating.
Proceeds from festival bars benefit Oliver Hazard Perry, RI’s 200-foot official sailing education vessel.
