Rock the Docks

It’s time to get your lobster bibs out for Newport’s favorite evening of casual dockside fun. Seamen’s Church Institute will hold the eighth annual Rock the Docks Lobsterfest on Sunday, Aug. 24, from 6-9 p.m. at Newport Shipyard. One of the agency’s largest fundraisers, Rock the Docks supports Seamen’s yearround Soup to Docks program that provides thousands of free soup meals to fishermen in Newport and Galilee.

The lobsters are donated by local fishermen as a thank you for the services and support Seamen's offers them all year long, and board members staff the event – setting up, serving, tending bar, and cooking – to keep costs down. Tickets are $100 and available at seamensnewport.org.
