Festival Fever: Troy ChowderFest @ Riverfront Park, 10/7/12

The HIgh Flyers
The Hi-Flyers

Autumn Pear Chowder…
Jamaican Clam Chowder…
Corn Crab Chipotle Chowder…
Roasted Local Corn and Irish Sausage Chowder…
Philly Cheesesteak Chowder in a Homemade Bread Bowl…
Hefeweizen Cheddar Bacon Corn Chowder with Chipotle Garlic Croutons…

And that’s just a few of the chowder variations that you can sample for yourself on Sunday (October 7), when the sixth annual Troy ChowderFest takes over Riverfront Park in Troy. More than a dozen Nippertown restaurants will be serving up something special, chowder-wise, so bring a hearty appetite.

Here’s how it works:
Each ticket that you buy for $1 entitles you to one cup of chowder, and, of course, you can buy as many tasting tickets as you like. Then vote for your favorite chowder and help crown the People’s Choice winner in the ChowderFest competition.

And in addition to some good eating, there will be live music throughout the day as well. And naturally, the Standard Clams will get their moment on the bandstand at the Chowderfest…

    Do they have a RAIN SITE??? Weather does not sound very cooperative. We can’t seem to break out of the monsoon season.
