A Maine Summertime Tradition Since 1965

The Yarmouth Clam Festival is an annual summer event that promotes the community and provides opportunities for Yarmouth-based non-profit organizations to raise funds in support of their missions. Admission to the Festival is FREE!

Every year approximately thirty non-profit groups volunteer thousands and thousands of hours to bring the Festival to life. Come join us for a long weekend (always the 3rd Friday in July) and enjoy all that we have to offer; Friday night parade, Saturday night fireworks, live music from 3 stages, fantastic food served by our non-profit volunteers, arts & crafts shows, road races and more. The Carnival on the Midway opens Wednesday evening and runs through Sunday. All other Festival activities start Friday at 10:00 am. Thank you for supporting us!
