Thousands of people expected to head to Saratoga Springs on Saturday for Chowderfest. 

In its 21st year, the Saratoga Chowderfest remains one of the most anticipated local events for epicures in the Capital Region. It typically brings around 40,000 people to downtown Saratoga and is organized by Discover Saratoga and presented by DeCrescente Distributing Company. 

Starting at 11 a.m., attendees can pick up a voting ballot at any of the participating restaurants in Saratoga Springs and spend the afternoon sampling any of the 90-plus chowders available for $1 a piece before voting for their favorites. Votes are tallied into seven categories. Ballots can be turned in at the Saratoga Springs Heritage Area Visitor Center or the Saratoga Springs City Center. Attendees can also vote online at discoversaratoga.com/chowderfest. Winners will be announced at 6:30 p.m. at the Visitor Center.  

There will also be free shuttles from downtown Saratoga Springs to Wilton Mall Park and Ride near Dick’s Sporting Goods and the Saratoga Casino Hotel.
