By July 1, 2022Rhode Island, Top News

The annual Newport Oyster & Chowder Festival, a celebration of Rhode Island’s marine community, returned to Bowen’s Wharf on May 21-22. Guests enjoyed food from local restaurants and oysters from several Rhode Island-based oyster growers, along with beverages and live music on Newport’s waterfront throughout the weekend. Sponsors included Chandon, Captain Morgan, Tanqueray, Guinness, Whalers Brewing Company, Whispering Angel Rosé, Astral Tequila, Ketel One Botanical Vodka, Shimmerwood Beverages and Fishers Island Lemonade. The festival partnered with Clean Ocean Access, whose Green Team volunteers managed waste stations and helped festival attendees separate landfill waste from composted materials, recycled items and oyster shells, in support of the organization’s Healthy Soils Healthy Seas RI initiative.
