Kick-off Your New England Summer at the Newport Oyster Festival

It’s going to be a shucking amazing weekend in Newport

The Newport Oyster & Chowder Festival at Bowen’s Wharf will be held Saturday, May 20, and Sunday, May 21:

Taste your way around the Ocean State! Sip a refreshing cocktail and enjoy oysters and chowder from local growers and vendors on the waterfront all weekend long. Did you know that RI 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 under our striped festival tents. 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.
