Newport Oyster & Chowder Festival
May 21 - May 22
Mark your calendars & start your countdown because the annual Newport Oyster & Chowder Festival is back on Saturday May 21st & Sunday May 22nd, 2022
Oh and guess what? There’s a new little touch this year: it’ll be FREE to attend… that’s right, no tickets needed for admission! All you need to do is gather your friends & come groove to some jazzy local bands, sip cold beverages and enjoy oysters + chowder on the waterfront all weekend long!
We’ll also have a full bar and other yummy food options provided by local restaurants (and food trucks!) in case you’re not a fan of oysters but still want to join in on the festivities
