The Charlestown Chamber of Commerce regrets to announce that the 36th Annual Charlestown Seafood Festival, scheduled for August 7, 8 & 9, 2020, is canceled.  On April 29, 2020, the Governor of the State of Rhode Island decreed that all large events planned for this summer cannot take place due to the restrictions placed on crowd sizes caused by the recent pandemic.  This will be the first time the Charlestown Seafood Festival has not taken place in thirty five years.   We have every intention of returning on August 6, 7 & 8, 2021 with an even bigger and better festival; plans are already underway.  We would like to thank our patrons, members, volunteers, vendors and the Town of Charlestown for their continued support during these trying times. 
It is vitally important that you support our member businesses at this time and going forward.  As the economy slowly reopens, and restrictions on travel and tourism are lifted, the Charlestown Chamber of Commerce and Tourist Information Center intends to open for business as usual this season.  In the absence of our biggest fundraiser, we strongly encourage you to please continue to support our valuable organization by consider making a donation.  It has been and continues to be the generosity and support of our businesses and community that keeps the chamber and tourist information center viable.  Stay tuned and follow us on Facebook and the chamber website for updates and plans for next year festival.
