saratoga chowderfest 2016

February 6, 2016 in Saratoga Springs, New York

Saratoga’s Annual Chowderfest is one of the area’s most highly anticipated events of the year. Family-friendly, fun and utterly delicious, Chowderfest features more than 90 vendors—including Saratoga County’s best restaurants and caterers—who open their doors to the public and serve hot bowls of chowder to event goers.

Sponsored by Saratoga Convention & Tourism Bureau, the 18-year anniversary of Saratoga Chowderfest starts at approximately 11 a.m. and will feature live music, face painting and, of course, a wide variety of chowders. Even dogs are welcome—establishments offer doggy chowder and photo ops for your four-legged friends.

Here’s how it works:

  • Pick up a ballot form at any participating establishment, taste different chowders for a $1 a cup (3 oz. serving) and vote for your favorite!
  • You can vote online at or drop off your completed ballot at Saratoga Springs Heritage Area Visitor Center and Saratoga Hilton where you can also purchase your official Chowderfest Long-sleeve T-shirt for $10 (XXL $12)
  • Winner Awards Ceremony in the Saratoga Springs Heritage Area Visitor Center at 6:30 p.m.
