Event Details

Chowder fans from Saratoga Springs NY can road tip to experience New England's largest chowder, soup and bisque competition in style. Hop on our charter bus, grab a pastry and coffee, then sit back and enjoy your trip to Westport CT. Our guide will distribute you're official Chowdafest cap, your Chowdafest guide and your chowder and soup holder. The trip includes your tickets and express check in when you arrive!

Once there you'll be able to enjoy UNLIMITED sampling of decadent chowders, soups and bisque from 40 restaurants, representing every New England state and as far away as Seattle. You'll be able to root on the Saratoga Chowderfest Champion Gaffney's restaurant who is entered in the competition in our creative chowder category. When you arrive, your hands will be stamped, you'll be given your pencil, spoon and official ballot where you'll rank those chowders you sample on a scale from 7 to 10.5. This will all be explained in our official guide as well as when you enter the event.

Chowdafest is more than just chowder, soup and bisque. We have a fun Italian section called "Ciao"dafest where you can sample freshly baked artisan breads dipped in fantastic sauces. You'll enjoy our Chowda-Mex section to sample gourmet chips and salsa. There's our Beverage Bog where you can sample a variety of beverages. Our 'sweet treats' section where you can sample fresh ice cream, milk, cookies, cheeses and yogurts.

You're bus will depart from the park at 2:00 for your ride home. You'll no doubt enjoy a nap after eating so much. When you arrive, feel free to swing into Gaffney's for a welcome reception or possible awards celebration.
