Taste the best chowder in the Capital Region at the 11th Annual Troy Chowderfest in Downtown Troy!

On October 8th, cast your vote for the People’s Choice best local chowder after sampling your share of chowders from over 30 area restaurants!

One dollar gets you one ticket, which gets you one 4-ounce cup of chowder. This year, there’s a limit of 20 tickets per person.

These restaurants must use local fresh ingredients in their recipes, so visitors will enjoy not only the freshest product, but will also be benefitting local business.

Prizes are awarded for best seafood, vegetarian, most original and overall favorite – judged by a secret panel of local restaurant critics. Festival-goers are able to vote on the coveted ‘People’s Choice’ award.

Taking the stage will be local bands The Getdown from 12:00pm to 2:30pm,  and Cryin’ Out Loud from 2:30pm to 4:00pm.

Chowderfest will take place in the downtown district.

Enjoy live, local musicians and fun for the whole family! The event is sponsored by the City of Troy as well as many local restaurants and businesses throughout the Capital Region.
