Saratoga’s Annual Chowderfest is one of the area’s most highly anticipated events of the year. Family-friendly, fun and utterly delicious, Chowderfest features more than 80 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.

Presented by Saratoga Convention & Tourism Bureau and DeCrescente Distributing Company, the 19-year anniversary of Saratoga Chowderfest starts at approximately 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. and will feature live music, family-friendly activities and, of course, a wide variety of chowders.

Here’s how it works:

  • No tickets necessary! Pick up a ballot form at any participating establishment, taste different chowders for a $1 a cup (3 oz. serving) and vote for your favorite!
  • You can vote for your favorite online at or vote on the ballot and drop it off at Saratoga Springs Heritage Area Visitor Center
  • Winner Awards Ceremony in the Saratoga Springs Heritage Area Visitor Center at 6:30 PM
