Saratoga’s Chowderfest 2014 Brings Record Crowds to City!

Saratoga Springs once again hosted its annual Chowderfest this past weekend.  The Festival Fanatics attended last year and we just had to come back this year too.

What a difference a year makes!

The number of chowder venues has increased by a couple of dozen and the crowds have increased three fold.  The sidewalks were packed with thousands of visitors all queuing up for a $1 cup of chowder…corn chowder, Spanish chowder, elk chowder, clam chowder, shrimp chowder and more.

This event, sponsored by the city of Saratoga Springs, is now among the largest festivals in the whole Upstate region.  You really should mark it down on your calender and come next year!
