While the words “inland” and “seafood” may seem mutually exclusive, Newport’s 26th annual Great Inland Seafood Festival is out to once again convince festivalgoers otherwise. There will be more than 15 local and national food vendors selling the freshest seafood, from shrimp and crawfish to oysters and salmon, even whole, live Maine lobsters for just $10.95.
And along with the plethora of tasty sea creatures will be free live music to help you dance and digest.
5-11 p.m. Thursday-Friday; noon-11 p.m. Saturday; noon-9 p.m. Sunday. Free. Riverboat Row, Newport, greatinlandseafoodfest.com.
