The 8th annual Boston Seafood Festival takes place on Sunday, August 4, 2019 from 11 a.m.–6 p.m. Held on Boston’s historic Fish Pier, the family-friendly festival again brings a bounty of seafood, live music, cooking demonstrations from local chefs, children’s activities and more to thousands of seafood lovers from around the region.
The Boston Seafood Festival is presented by the Boston Fisheries Foundation, and invites festival-goers to learn the stories of America’s oldest industry, and the people, practices and innovations which help it thrive in one of the nation’s busiest seaports. Special events for the day include chef demonstrations from some of Boston’s best eateries, the Battle of the Shuckers Oyster Shucking Competition, two Harpoon Brewery beer gardens, fish cutting demonstrations and the all-day lobster bake overlooking Boston Harbor.
Some of Boston’s top seafood venues sell New England seafood favorites (as well as non-seafood options), while musical performances, roving pirates and all-day children’s activities presented by Save the Harbor/Save the Bay fill the pier. For the fifth consecutive year, the Foundation recognizes its newest honoree to its BFF Seafood Hall of Fame at the event.
