Here is a little history on how this special event has evolved in the past 25 years.
Upon it’s initial launch, the Clambake Jazz Festival was called the Dixieland Jazz Festival. Since that time, the festival music has evolved with their audience to include a range of musical styles like Big Band, Zydeco, Blues, Gospel, Oldies, Rock & Roll and of course, Dixieland and the event was eventually renamed The South Coast Clambake Jazz Festival.

  • Soulpie
  • Gator Nation

Are there clams, you ask?  A “clambake” is a jam session, so it is about the music, not the clams.   However, there are plenty of great places to get good seafood in our area!
