  • When: Saturday September 10th, 2022 | 11:00am-8:00pm It’s that time of year again as planning is in motion for our 6th Annual State-Wide Rhode Island Calamari Festival on September 10, 2022. This festival has now grown to be one of Narragansett’s biggest events, serving over 3,000 lbs. of calamari while drawing in over 4,000+ people from across Southern New England. We will continue to post updates on this page and via email, so be sure you’re signed up to stay connected and when tickets go on sale! The Rhode Island Calamari Festival is held the Saturday following Labor Day each year at Veteran’s Park in Narragansett. Once called “America’s First Resort,” because of the picturesque coastline, Narragansett is also home to the second largest fishing fleet in New England. The squid that is brought in through the Port of Galilee has an international reputation for its quality. For this reason, we celebrate our “Official State Appetizer” each year while we kick back and enjoy great food, music and historic Narragansett at the Rhode Island Calamari Festival. Come enjoy one of the last weekends of summer and vote for your favorite calamari offerings as local restaurants battle for top honors in three categories; Best Overall, Most Inventive, and Most Spirited Team. For those not interested in the tasting portion of the day, we’re sure that between the live music, cash bar, food trucks, shopping and kids activities there will certainly be something that you’ll enjoy! Do you love fresh local seafood? Do you love to eat? Do you love gathering with friends and family to enjoy the best that Rhode Island has to offer? If the answer is yes to any of these questions than we promise you’ll love the Rhode Island Calamari Festival!
