September 9, 10, 11, 2016
The Hampton Beach Seafood Festival has once again been acclaimed as “One of the Top 100 Events in North America” for 2015 by the American Bus Association. It is certainly the biggest street fair we know of in New England. And why wouldn’t it be when you consider all the ingredients that make up the Hampton Beach Seafood Festival and Sidewalk Sales Days, Friday, Saturday & Sunday, September 9, 10 & 11. First and foremost, it’s a genuine seafood extravaganza and that’s the hook, so to speak. Seafood lovers cannot seem to get their fill of the abundant choices. Almost any seafood favorite you can think of will be grilled, steamed, or deep fried from calamari to shrimp and clams to lobsters-not to mention the chowder and delicious light lobster raviolis. The choices go on and on. After all, there are 50+ area restaurants under large tents plying their skills. Plenty of non-seafood items and other typical fair fare are available to keep everybody happy.

On Saturday, September 10th, 2016, the Annual Lobster Roll Eating Contest will take place at the Hampton Beach Seafood Festival. Twelve lucky contestants will be chosen to compete alongside four celebrities. $1,000 is on the line, with the winner receiving $600, second place taking home $250, and third place leaving with $150. The winner will receive bragging rights along with automatic entry into next year’s competition. The ten-minute eating frenzy is sponsored by McGuirk’s Ocean View.
The ideal places to enjoy your catch of the day are the “Pub Tent” with a cool Bud or Redhook Ale or a glass of Barefoot Wine, and the always popular “Barefoot Wine Beach Cabana Bar” where you can keep your toes in the sand while enjoying your beverages and continuous beachside entertainment. Enjoy great bands all three days on the main Mohegan Sun Stage in the center of the festival.

What to place second is a toss up between the fabulous sidewalk sale lineup on closed-to-traffic Ocean Boulevard; the incredible entertainment playing continuously on two stages; spectacular fireworks Saturday at 8:15; and a skydiving demonstration on Sunday at 5:00 p.m.; or the crafts on sale by over 60 local artisans. Not to mention magnificent culinary demonstrations by big name chefs presented by the Pat Whitley Restaurant Show and Wicked Bites, and a specially designated Kiddie Land with puppet performances, magicians, and more to entertain the younger set.

The whole event kicks off Friday afternoon, September 9 at 4:00 p.m. Admission fee is $5.00 on Friday, $10 on Saturday, and $8.00 on Sunday. Admission for children under 12 is free. The entrance gates will be staffed by volunteers from the Knights of Columbus, who will share in the proceeds from admission fees.
The 2016 Presenting Sponsor is OneMain Financial. Other sponsors include: Mohegan Sun, L. L. Bean, Geico, New Hampshire Air National Guard, Subaru of New England, Inn Season Resorts, LeafFilter, New Hampshire State Liquor Commission, NEWPRO, Owens Corning, Power Home Remodeling Group, Renewal By Andersen, SolarCity, Jerky Hut, Home Heat, Softub, Boston Globe, WJD Enterprises, Barefoot Wine, New Hampshire Distributors, Pinard Waste Systems, Seacoast Coca-Cola, Seacoast Bargain Outlet, Relco, Favorite Foods, First Student, SkyDive New England, Seacoast Media Group.
