We’re pleased to announce the 4th annual Rhode Island Quahog Week, which runs from March 25-31 this year. Quahog Week is a statewide celebration of our iconic Rhode Island clam.

WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?

All participating restaurants and markets will be prominently featured on SeafoodRI.com and across multiple social media channels affiliated with the RI Seafood Collaborative. Participants may also be included in media coverage of the event. Participants will also receive promotional materials to help generate business.

WHY IT'S IMPORTANT

Our local food system supports more than 60,000 jobs and is a key driver in attracting tourism to the Ocean State. As quahogs are plentiful in Narragansett Bay year-round, they are perfect ingredients in myriad seasonal recipes including stuffies, hearty chowders, soups, various pasta dishes and more.

Let’s work together to spread awareness of Rhode Island’s bounty and the talented chefs who prepare the quahog in so many savory ways.
