Saratoga Chowderfest is the Best Winter “Thing-to-Do” in Saratoga Springs, New York
Saratoga Chowderfest is one of the area’s most highly anticipated events of the year. Family-friendly, fun and utterly delicious, Chowderfest features more than 90 vendors—including Saratoga County’s best restaurants and caterers—who open their doors to the public and serve hot bowls of chowder to event goers.
Sponsored by Saratoga Convention & Tourism Bureau, the 18-year anniversary of Saratoga Chowderfest starts at approximately 11 a.m. and will feature live music, face painting and, of course, a wide variety of chowders.
