Cape Cod Quahog Day

Cape Cod Quahog Day

SAVE THE DATE: The 11th Annual Quahog Day will be held Friday, June 21, 2019 at the oceanfront Sea Crest Beach Hotel in North Falmouth!

At the 10th Annual Quahog Day ceremony at Pilot House Restaurant overlooking Sandwich Marina, Cape Cod's beloved mascot Doug the Quahog predicted a whopping 67 beach days for the Cape in Summer 2018.

Quahog Day was held on the First Day of Summer - June 21, 2018 - and was emceed by Cape Cod native and WCVB-TV Boston anchor and reporter Doug Meehan.

The Quahog Day tradition has become a rite of passage into summer for many Cape Cod residents and visitors. Kicking off the summer season, Doug the Quahog makes his highly anticipated annual summer beach forecast through his human sidekick, Johnny Quahog of Quahog Republic. During the event, he's escorted by a trusty Quahog Security Detail, a team of black-suited men and women armed with clamming rakes. Read the stories of some of Doug's loyal Quahog Security Members.

Come witness history in the making! Join us on the First Day of Summer every year when Doug delivers his annual prediction!
