Clam Bakes

Clambake Season in Northeast Ohio is a very unique experience. Unlike the Eastern Seaboard and other Coastal areas that celebrate Clambakes in the Summer months. Cleveland Ohio has its own twist on this fabulous feast. In Cleveland or Northeast Ohio in general we call the Fall, Clambake Season. From the weekend after Labor Day to the last weekend in October it is Clambake Season. In backyards, parks, restaurants or any other venue that you can fire up a Clam steamer and fill the air with the flavors and aromas of a seafood treat like no other you will find northeast Ohioans during our Clambake Season.
