Annual Clam Bake

  • Details
  • The Vanderbilt Museum’s sixth annual Clam Bake is set for Saturday, July 22, from 6:00 to 10:00 in the Celebration Tent on the Great Lawn overlooking Northport Bay and Long Island Sound. This is the Vanderbilt’s largest fund-raising event and benefits the Museum's education programs. The menu offers seafood-lovers' favorites – from whole steamed lobsters, clams, shrimp cocktail, seafood salad, barbecued chicken, burgers, hot dogs and corn-on-the-cob, plus wine, beer and soda. Tickets are $125 per person and can be purchased online at, or call 631-854-5579, Monday through Friday, 10:00-4:00. Participants are invited to bring their nine irons and take part in a chip-shot contest in honor of Willie Vanderbilt's original estate golf course. The player who gets closest to the pin wins the pot.
