Two of Monterey County's most loved dishes come together in June for The Great Monterey Clam Chowder and Calamari Festival. Custom House Plaza, connected to Old Fisherman's Wharf, will be swarming with comforting cuisines from the sea paired with lots of entertainment! The family-friendly and free event takes place June 21 and June 22 from 11am-7pm.


Clam chowder and calamari aren't the only food options available. Attendees can also munch on fish n' chips, BBQ ribs, chicken, smoked salmon and Italian sausages. Desserts offered include cannolis, strawberry shortcake, ice cream and more! Beer and wine will also be available for those 21 and older.


The Clam Chowder & Calamari Festival has quite the lineup when it comes to live music and entertainment. All three days are packed with a little something for everyone. Local chefs will demonstrate how to properly clean and cook calamari, the Chicano All Stars will jam out on the main stage and there will be plenty of activities to keep the kids busy.
