What’s more Rhode Island than the quahog? Join us in celebrating our state’s favorite clam this Quahog Week, May 17 to 23!
Quahog Week applauds our iconic Rhode Island clam through a statewide, week-long celebration that highlights the hardworking men and women who harvest quahogs from Narragansett Bay, the fabulous RI markets and restaurants that offer them to consumers, and the talented chefs who prepare them in so many delicious ways.
Throughout the week, restaurants and markets across Rhode Island will spotlight this sustainable resource and its year-round availability by featuring a quahog dish on their menu. Quahog Week is our opportunity to step back and enjoy our wild harvest shellfish, as well as our state's amazing array of eateries. Show your support by sampling the many tasty dishes that will be featured by participating restaurants, as well as by preparing some of your own at home from participating markets.

Our local food system supports more than 60,000 jobs and is a key driver in attracting tourism to the Ocean State. Quahogs are plentiful in Narraganset Bay year-round. And, they are delicious — fresh shucked on the half shell, steamed, or prepared as stuffies, chowders and pasta dishes. There are so many options! No matter how you participate, Quahog Week offers plenty of ways to enjoy delicious local seafood and learn about, celebrate and support our thriving RI seafood industry and local “foodie” culture.
