Cape Cod Quahog Day


Celebrate the first day of Summer 2009 “Quahog-style!” Join us for the First Annual Cape Cod Quahog Day at 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 21, 2009 at the Quahog Republic Waterfront Eatery on Mashnee Island in Bourne.

Sponsored by the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce, the day of family fun will kick off with the “Quahog Prognostication” – an announcement from the Secretary General of Quahog Republic as he receives word from the “official quahog” on how many weeks of Cape Cod beach weather lie ahead.

Other highlights of the festivities – which will be held on the Quahog Republic lawn overlooking the water and emceed by Channel 5 News Anchor Steve Lacy – include a clambake preparation ritual, shucking demonstrations, live entertainment, children’s activities, and various contests, where attendees will have a chance to compete to be the 2009 Ms. Quahog, Boss Hog and Mister/Miss Littleneck. The general event is free and open to the public, with food and drink available for sale at the restaurant.

A traditional clambake, which will be served at 6 p.m. under a tent on the lawn, will be a ticketed event. Clambake will include 1¼ boiled lobster, steamers, linguica, potatoes and corn. The cost for the clambake PLUS a limited edition First Annual Cape Cod Quahog Day T-Shirt, is just $48.
