Saratoga Chowderfest is coming up this weekend and we're already mapping out chowder options!


The 19th Annual Saratoga Chowderfest is coming up this weekend, specifically this Saturday, February 4th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and not only will it be a day filled with live music and family friendly activities but it has over 80 different vendors serving a wide variety of chowders!!

I've been combing over the list of chowders that are going to be served and have come up with 5 chowders that I am going to make it my mission to try. They are as follows:

  1. Bourbon Bacon Chowder
  2. Cheeseburger Beer Chowder
  3. Kentucky Bourbon Sweet Potato Chowder

(Are you sensing a theme here yet?)

4. Southwest Shrimp Corn Chowder with Tequila, Bacon, and Tequila Wonton                     5. Beer & Cheese Chowder with Bacon & Pretzel Croutons

All joking aside there are plenty of chowder options sans booze as well. With over 80 different vendors serving up chowder you can't go wrong. From all the classic chowders to some very innovative chowders, seafood options, and even some great vegan and vegetarian selections.

Not to mention it's only a dollar a sample so you can do your best to try them ALL!! If you want to see the list of the chowders we know will be available and where on Saturday, get details on how to vote for your favorite, and how to catch a FREE park and ride shuttle go ahead and click HERE.
