Award-winning outdoor seafood festival returns to Montreal this month

May 16 2018, 9:53 pm

You can’t go wrong when it comes to Lobster Clam Jam. It’s got it all.

On May 27, the festival will cook up its 6th annual outdoor feast.

Last year’s edition showcased over 35 restaurants and welcomed more than 6,600 attendees. Expect similar savoury results this time around.

In 2015, Lobster Clam Jam was awarded by the Food Network and Everfest as one of the Top Food Festivals in the world.

The outdoor festival is beautifully set up along the Lachine Canal, just west of the Atwater Market.

The massive food festival caters to people who love food and are hungry to experience a wide selection of meat, fowl, game, fish, and, of course, lobster and shellfish dishes. The festival showcases tasty food by home-grown talent, as well as delicious cocktails by marquee mixologists from around Montreal.

The event has introduced their own Lobster Clam Jam currency called, Clams. The branded token is valued at $3 and is used in exchange for food at all of the restaurant outlets. The majority of the food dishes are priced at $6 with some higher-end meals ranging from $9-$12. All alcoholic cocktails and beer are priced at $6 as well.

Clams currently have no value on the New York or Toronto stock exchange.

But the exquisite local food may prove to be more valuable. Just check out a few of the local restaurants who will be setting up outlets at this year’s Lobster Clam Jam – imagine all of these tasty places together at once.

It’s like The Avengers of food festivals!

Lobster Clam Jam will also feature a Mojito bar, a beer and wine bar, a cafe, and six different dessert locations on site.

Children are welcome to play in the supervised Kid’s Korner which includes bouncy houses, a jungle gym, and caricature drawings.

Catch some rays, enjoy live music, and treat yourself to a variety of Montreal’s best food outlets.
