50th Anniversary Clam Festival Portland Symphony Orchestra Concert

We’re so excited to be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Clam Festival. As Maine’s largest free-admission festival, with over 100,000 attendees over 3 days, we’re working hard to bring a special event to Town that is consistent with our community and family friendly ideals.

We are pleased to announce that the Yarmouth Clam Festival is bringing the Portland Symphony Orchestra to Yarmouth Saturday evening of the Festival. There’s more…special guest artist David Mallet and his sons via The Mallett Brothers Band will join them for an unforgettable show culminating with our largest firework show ever!

The show is July 18, 2015 at 7PM at the Yarmouth Clam Festival. Come early, set up your chairs, have dinner, and enjoy the show.

A limited number of VIP seats are available for preferred seating. See the DONATE page for more details.

Put it in the calendar and we’ll see you in July!
