Historic Bowen's Wharf in downtown Newport, RI, will host the 28th annual Bowen's Wharf Seafood Festival, on October 13th and 14th. Named one of the "10 Fabulous Fall Festivals on the Coast," by Coastal Living Magazine, this event is an open invitation to come back to the waterfront after the rush of the summer season!
Honoring the "Harvest of the Sea," the Bowen's Wharf Seafood Festival offers fresh, local seafood. Fish tacos, lobster rolls, fried calamari, oysters, signature cocktails and cold Whaler's Brewing beer accompany continuous live music, and family fun, all beneath the Wharf's colorful tents. Other neighboring restaurants and fisherman's associations serve up their most celebrated seafood dishes (lobster dinners, clam chowder, stuffed quahogs, clam cakes, shrimp, scallops, raw oysters and clams, as well as a few dishes for landlubbers and kids). Fresh smoothies, donuts and kettle corn for your sweet tooth. Cafe-style seating is set up throughout the Wharf and proceeds from festival bars benefit Oliver Hazard Perry, RI's 200-foot official sailing education vessel.
