Wicked Interesting:

Bowens Warf Seafood Festival

A fantastic array of over 20+ vendors from all over #RhodeIsland. Historic Bowen's Wharf in downtown Newport, RI, will host the 27th annual Bowen's Wharf Seafood Festival, on October 14th and 15th. 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, signature cocktails and cold 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 juice, soft drinks, desserts 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 Rhode Island RI's brand new 200-foot official sailing education vessel which will be at Bowen's Wharf Marina and available for ship visits.

Check in with The Nature Conservancy in Rhode Island while you're here: they're helping us all make sure that recyclables, compostables, shells, trash are all separated and heading to the best possible place for disposal.

Be sure to check in at the RI Oyster Trail booth to participate in the all-site scavenger hunt!

As you savor fresh dishes, sit back and enjoy the beats from area bands. Live folk, Celtic, Caribbean and blues music are just a taste of what you'll hear. Bring your dancing shoes, because these bands promise to get your feet moving!

Join the 8,000-10,000 locals and devoted visitors over the course of this two-day event.
