Quahog Day

Quahog Day

Mark your calendar for Doug the Quahog's first prediction of the new decade! The 12th Annual Quahog Day has been set for Monday, June 22, 2020, and while social distancing may keep us all from gathering to hear Doug's forecast in person, we will be airing it on social media and right here on our website!

Cape Cod’s infamous “Doug”—the region’s beloved official Quahog since 2009—will deliver his highly anticipated annual summer forecast and predict how many beach days we can look forward to in 2020. Quahog Day, presented by the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce, is a true rite of passage into summer for Cape Cod residents and visitors alike.

During his “Prognostication Ceremony,” Doug will whisper his prediction into the ear of his human sidekick, Captain Johnny Quahog of the Quahog Republic, who will then relay the sunny forecast to  the attending crowd. He is flanked by his trusty Quahog Security Detail, a team of black-suited men and women armed with clamming rakes

Come witness history in the making! Watch on June 22, 2022 when Doug delivers his annual prediction.
