An Annual Affair

The 2019 Boston Seafood Festival

The Boston Fisheries Foundation welcomes you to join us for the 8th Annual Boston Seafood Festival on the historic Boston Fish Pier on Sunday, August 4th, 2019 from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM.  It will be a day of sensational seafood, clambakes and chef demos, educational events, and family fun.

Why have a seafood festival?  Festival co-founder Joe Zanti, owner of Yankee Lobster Co., explains, “We want to offer a fun day to enjoy one of New England’s most important natural resources in a responsible and enjoyable way. We’ll be celebrating our maritime heritage together, and eating some really good food!”

Come enjoy the food and festivities and learn about the oldest industry in the United States!

Schedule of Events

Come “sea” it all!

The founding festival team represented women and men from across the Boston seafood industry with the shared vision of promoting the historical importance of seafood in New England. The first party was held in the seaport, overlooking Boston Harbor. The crowd included dozens of Boston’s top chefs, seafood vendors, and entertainers, and attracted a diverse audience from all over New England. Year after year, the festival grew and is now hosted at the site that gave birth to this vital industry: the historic Boston Fish Pier. Every year, the event attracts more vendors, chefs, entertainers and attendees – and 2019 promises to be the best year yet!

The Boston Seafood Festival is presented each year by the Boston Fisheries Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization created to preserve, sustain and share our seafood and maritime heritage as essential to our common health.
