Volunteer “bake masters” are getting ready to feed close to 2,000 people on September 26 as the Orleans Chamber of Commerce hosts the 4th Annual ClamBQ Food and Music Festival. This family-friendly foodie event takes place at Eldredge Park Field in Orleans, located next to Nauset Regional Middle School, and combines elements of a traditional clam bake and an authentic BBQ. With live music, local crafts and games for the kids, this event is a guaranteed home-run. Here are a few important things to know before you go:
Take a Seat – Seating is limited, so be sure to bring along your beach chairs or a blanket so you can relax under the warm September sunshine.
Eat Your Heart Out – Steamed clams and savory bbq are the specialties of the day, but they aren’t the only thing up for grabs. Various local food purveyors will be dishing a wide range of delicious things to eat, as well as ice cream from the Local Scoop. Guests who wish to enjoy a clam or bbq plate must purchase meal tickets.
Toast the Season: A fenced-off beer and wine tent will also be available to those who would like to wash down their bbq with an ice-cold brew.
Dance Like No One’s Watching – Local bands will keep the crowd entertained as they chow down.
12:30 – 2 p.m. Sarah Swain and the Oh Boys
2:30 – 4 p.m. The Rip-It-Ups
4:30 – 6 p.m. Digney Fignus
Come Back Again Soon – Guests can leave the event and reenter later in the day.
