Organizers at Discover Saratoga went with a “Chowder Tour” model for the popular event last year because of COVID-19 concerns. It stretched out the chowder samplings over several days so that there wouldn’t be crowds and longtime Chowderfest-goers could still enjoy a taste of the traditional celebration.

This year, the tour goes from Saturday through Friday, March 25, with restaurants around the Saratoga area offering up pints and quarts of a variety of chowders.

Then, on Saturday, March 26, the traditional Chowderfest returns, with more than 50 restaurants and eateries set to serve up 4-ounce samples for $2. The festival is slated to run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in downtown Saratoga Springs. Attendees can vote on their favorite chowders and there will be live entertainment and family-friendly activities throughout the city.
