5:00 PM - 7:00 PM: Traditional Littleneck Boil
The highlight of the Festival! Local fishermen dig for the shellfish themselves fresh out of the waters we’re aiming to keep alive and well. Besides a generous helping of little necks the boil also comes with an array of meats, potatoes and onion all cooked to perfection in our staff’s secret seasoning and broth.
An optional steak dinner is available in lieu of the Littleneck boil.
Children receive a free hot dog with purchase of a ticket.
Check back often for band announcements and follow us on social media for event updates!
We will also have Live Music, Cash Beer & Wine and Raw Bar all day!
