Get #CozyInTroy with ChowderFest BINGO
This year, Troy ChowderFest invites Downtown Troy Shoppers and Diners to join in on the competition. Although large events are not possible due to the pandemic, participants can still enjoy the fourteenth year of ChowderFest in a modified format with #CozyInTroy ChowderFest BINGO. Download the card and begin celebrating all things cozy and warm Monday, October 19, 2020 through Saturday, October 31, 2020. Participation is FREE and welcomes all ages, palates, styles and interests. Enjoy a variety of soups and chowders throughout the two weeks, alongside comforting services like reiki and massage, fall-colored clothing and accessories, crisp scents or a warm spiced beverage. Not only will you be enjoying your favorite Fall but your support will benefit many local small businesses.
ChowderFest BINGO is an easy and safe way to get out and about and connect for a thriving downtown. It can be safely played at home, with to-go or delivery, online retail sites or with categories like “Pay it Forward,” “I Live in Troy” and “Support a Charity.” Warm up your home with incense, a furniture item, new paint, or scented soap. Afterwards try a “Traditional,” “Vegetarian,” “Seafood” or “Non-Traditional” soup from a Downtown business. Community (virtually and in-person) is incredibly important during times like these. As weather cools, options to “Gift a Friend” or “Gift your favorite Small Business Owner” are small easy tokens of appreciation. The Downtown Troy BID hopes participants, families and students will discover something new (flavors, dishes, a shop, or a walk around a new block) and return for more throughout the year.
“As the weather cools small businesses call on their community to shop, dine and explore downtown Troy,” said Katie Hammon, Executive Director of the Downtown Troy Business Improvement District. “ChowderFest Bingo is a play on Troy’s favorite fall tradition giving you the perfect excuse to celebrate the changing of the season. Not only is it a fun opportunity to indulge in cozy fall treats, but it’s also a great way to support your neighboring small businesses and ensure that they will be here for many years to come.”
Downtown Troy presents 10 full days & nights to experience the annual chowder competition in a new way. BINGO participants only need 4 spots filled on their game card to enter into the Prize Raffle, but just how many spots can you fill?
