Filed Under: Non Profit News

The 15th Annual Quahog Day ceremony will take place June 21 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Tree House Brewing Company, 98 Town Neck Road in Sandwich. WBZ-TV Chief Meteorologist Eric Fisher will emcee this year’s festivities.

Celebrated on the first day of summer each year, Quahog Day, is sponsored by the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce to officially proclaim the start of the summer season. Doug the Quahog will give his much-anticipated prediction for how many beach days lie ahead. Doug will whisper his forecast to Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce CEO Paul Niedzwiecki, who will translate it for the masses.

Quahog Day“With rentals and occupancy rates looking strong, this should be a very prosperous summer for our business community,” said Niedzwiecki. “The Cape is ready to welcome visitors from near and far, and we hope everyone will support our small businesses, restaurants and Main Streets.”

This event is free.  Enjoy a Tree House craft brew, cold brew, bubble hop or assortment of alcohol-free drinks. Seafood Sam’s food truck will be on hand supplying fresh “fish on the fly.” Door prizes will also be available.

“I’m looking forward to being a part of this fun event that is so uniquely Cape Cod,” said Fisher. “As a meteorologist and a native New Englander, I love all kinds of weather, but I appreciate that we’re all hoping Doug gives us a sunny forecast.”

Paul and Doug recently got together to film a preview video for this year’s event.  See the video at
