The Troy ChowderFest welcomes chowder-lovers throughout Capital Region to come out and judge who has the best chowder in the area. It's a full day of fall food, live music, and family fun!


Come enjoy local chowder with a competitive edge. Over 30 restaurants are competing for best chowder. Who will win? You decide!


On October 8th you can 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 a 4-ounce cup of chowder.

These restaurants must use local fresh ingredients in their recipes, so visitors will enjoy not only the freshest products 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.

The event is sponsored by the City of Troy as well as many local restaurants and businesses throughout the Capital Region.
