WCOD Cape Cod Chowder Festival
WCOD’s annual Chowder Fest is a chance for you to sample a couple of Cape favorites – clam chowder and The Melody Tent, which, together with the South Shore Music Circus, has been presenting world-class entertainment on the Cape for over 60 years.
From noon to 3 PM, the Melody Tent comes alive with live music from some of the Cape’s best bands surrounding representatives from many of the Cape’s best restaurants, all competing for the coveted “WCOD Chowder Bowl.” It’s a family-friendly event with a distinct seaside flavor – literally and figuratively – as you get to sample freely. Tickets are $15 in advance for adults and club members.
If you’re not familiar with the South Shore Music Circus and its sister venue, the Cape Cod Melody Tent, they’re the only two continuously-operated tent theatres in the round in the United States, well-known for their relaxed ambiance and intimate theatre experience where every seat is within 50 feet of the stage. There are regular musical performances throughout the summer: www.themusiccircus.org and www.melodytent.org
