This year’s Bowen’s Wharf Seafood Festival, held in Newport, RI, is set for October 18 & 19, 2014. The event features fresh seafood prepared by Rhode Island’s top chefs and fishermen. There will also be handcrafted brew, live music and kids’ activities.

Fish tacos from Diego’s Restaurant, signature cocktails and cold New England 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). Spirits and soft drinks are available. Desserts include tempting pies, ciders, and other baked goods. Cafe-style seating is set up throughout the Wharf.

Admission is free and event hours are 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m..
