It’s the official kick-off to summer in Newport!
Saturday, June 4, 12pm - 6pm
The legendary international chowder championship enters its 30th year in 2011, and the competition is thicker than ever! Enjoy all-you-can-eat samples of various traditional and exotic chowders from across the country and beyond, and vote for the best in three categories: Clam, Seafood and Creative. The power is in your spoon to crown the new titans of chowder! Three world champions return this year to defend their title: Tony’s Cedar Key Clam Chowder (Cedar Key, FL), Michael’s Seafood (Carolina Beach, NC) and The Boat House (Tiverton, RI). With 3 stages of live island-vibe entertainment, kids’ activities and plenty of new surprises to commemorate our 30th year (like our Clamcake Eating Challenge!), we’re cooking up something sensational this summer!
