Cape Cod Quahog Day

Cape Cod Quahog Day

The 10th Annual Cape Cod Quahog Day will receive a mighty dose of broadcasting flair thanks to this year's emcee, Cape Cod native and WCVB-TV Boston anchor and reporter Doug Meehan!

Meehan will host the festivities at 2 p.m. on Thursday, June 21, the First Day of Summer, at the Pilot House Restaurant & Lounge overlooking Sandwich Marina. He will work alongside Cape Cod’s other infamous “Doug”, the region’s beloved official Quahog since 2009.

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 will make his highly anticipated annual summer beach forecast through his human sidekick, Johnny Quahog of Quahog Republic. During the event, he'll escorted by a 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 when Doug delivers his 2018 prediction and stay afterwards to celebrate with small bites, music and cash bar on the Pilot House lawn. The 10th Annual Quahog Day is sponsored by Rockland Trust and is supported by Sandwich Chamber of Commerce.
