LOBSTER CLAM JAM is a highly acclaimed outdoor food festival. Not just for seafood lovers, this affordable, family-oriented culinary showcase offers guests the opportunity to experience the creations of a variety of renowned local chefs and restaurants. Recognized by The Food Network and Everfest as one of the Top Food Festivals in the World, Lobster Clam Jam caters to people from all walks of life, from every nationality and culture, affording our guests the opportunity to experience a wide selection of meat, fowl, game, fish (and of course, lobster and shellfish) dishes.


Launched in Montreal, Quebec in 2013, Lobster Clam Jam began with the idea of showcasing great food by home-grown talent, and creative and delicious cocktails by marquee mixologists. Our event is a great chance for parents and their little ones to spend a day together, enjoying delicious food, in a friendly atmosphere of fresh air and sunshine.

Children can play in our supervised Kid’s Korner while their parents and grandparents relax, socialize and enjoy delicious food in a friendly atmosphere of fresh air and sunshine.


There will be over 25 restaurants, a Mojito Bar, a Beer Bar, a Wine Bar, a Coffee Bar and 6 Dessert sections on site!

Guests will be treated to a culinary experience by each restaurant, using the best in local and international ingredients. Each of the restaurants will serve 2 different signature dishes totalling over 50 different delicious dishes to try.

The event will be set up in a beautiful outdoor atmosphere along the Lachine canal just west of the Atwater Market.
