One weekend every Summer, over 100,000 people come to the Yarmouth Clam Festival to try new food, play games, and create fun memories.
The Yarmouth Lions Club has been participating in Clam Fest for over 50 years, serving up delicious festival favorites, to raise money that directly supports local service programs.
All proceeds from Lions Club Clam Fest food sales go directly back into Yarmouth
The Lions Club of Yarmouth, Maine is the only Clam Festival food vendor where 100% of proceeds will go to help local service organizations. Each sale of our fried haddock fingers, fried shrimp, chicken tenders, french fries, and the Lemon Lucy slush drink will enable these service organizations to fund critical programs that support Yarmouth residents, of all ages, who need assistance. Below is a partial list of organizations that benefit from our annual Clam Festival fundraiser:
- Yarmouth Cares About Neighbors (YCAN)
- Bartlett Circle Senior Housing Facility
- Merrill Memorial Library
- Yarmouth Community Garden
- Casco Bay YMCA
- IRIS Network
- Maine Center For Grieving Children
- Wayfinder Schools
- Camp Susan Curtis
- Camp Sunshine
