Essex ClamFest 2023

October 21, 2023 @ 11:00 am 4:00 pm

What better way to enjoy the region’s cuisine than by sampling some of the best seafood around at the 39th annual Essex ClamFest? On Saturday, October 21, head to Shepard Memorial Park in Essex for a day of live music, artisan stands, and food vendors. The highlight of the day is the clam chowder competition—from noon to 3 p.m., local restaurants compete for the title of best clam chowder. The festival is free to enter; there’s a $10 fee to taste the chowders while supplies last.
