Saturday, February 6, 2016, the Saratoga Convention and Tourism Bureau will host their 18th Annual Chowderfest. In 2015, Chowderfest attracted an estimated 30,000 attendees who enjoyed 115,000 cups of some of the most tasty and unique chowders you'll find anywhere. Nearly 90 restaurants will again serve chowder samples for just $1 per cup. Local establishments setup indoor and outdoor entertainment as well. Chowderfest is fun for the thousands of attendees but it is also serious business with people booking hotels in and around the City, hosting reunions with family and friends, and enjoying a little time outside the day before the Superbowl.
