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 80 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.
Presented by Saratoga Convention & Tourism Bureau and DeCrescente Distributing Company, the 19-year anniversary of Saratoga Chowderfest starts at approximately 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. and will feature live music, family-friendly activities and, of course, a wide variety of chowders.
We encourage dog-owners to please leave your pets at home, for safety reasons.
As you can see by the pictures and videos, it is a great time for the entire family. You don’t want to miss it! For more information on Saratoga’s Chowderfest or if you would like to become a member of the Saratoga Convention & Tourism Bureau and participate, please contact Connie!
