The Little Neck Boil

If you come hungry you’ll leave full! DSCF0271

The main event of The Bristol Harbor Festival is a traditional little neck boil. Local fishermen dig for the shellfish themselves fresh out of the waters we’re aiming to keep alive and well.

If you consider clam boils a culinary delight, or are new to the concept, this one won’t disappoint.


Besides a generous helping of little necks the boil also comes with an array of meats, potatoes and onion all cooked to perfection in our staff’s secret seasoning and broth. As you can see, we’re not skimping on the portions!


The Bristol Harbor Festival provides two separate seatings for this bountiful meal.


  • The first seating will take place at 5:00pm. DSC_1031
  • The second seating will take place at 7:00pm.

Tickets are $20 per person and each seating will hold 150 people, which means two things…

  1. Tickets must be purchased in advance.
  2. We’ll sell out quick! This is a hot ticket after all!

Here’s how to purchase tickets.

  1. You can go to the maritime center located on Church St. to physically purchase tickets.
  2. You can contact the Harbormaster’s office from our website here.
