From 35th annual Essex ClamFest Website:

The Essex Division of the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce will sponsor the annual Essex ClamFest in Memorial Park in Essex. The highlight of the day will be the Clam Chowder Tasting, a competition that pits area restaurants against one another to determine who serves the best clam chowder on Cape Ann. Local restaurants are expected to serve up their favorite chowder recipes starting at noon and ending about 2 pm.

Judges of the chowder will be announced in advance. The public will also have the opportunity to sample and vote on their favorite chowder.

In addition to the Chowder competition, you'll find an interesting variety of activities including an arts and crafts area and vendors providing food and fun. Join us for entertainment throughout the afternoon; the Lions Club food pavilion; organization, church, and non-profit tables. The crafts area will be open to the public starting at 11 am.
