The smell of chowder wafted through the Collar City this afternoon.

The 16th annual Chowderfest returned to the City of Troy.

Hundreds of people turned out to sample food from dozens of local businesses. The free event featured 4 oz. samples of soup for $2 each.

Businesses in various Downtown Troy locations served out of their storefronts. The festival had soups ranging from buffalo chicken chowder, autumn bounty chowder, and seafood chowder available for sampling.

Eventgoers, like Steven Peters, were excited to see the return of Chowderfest. Peters told us “It is a great event. A lot of people from around the city come out to support the businesses and get some new menu items.”

19 restaurants participated in this year’s event, which included live music and craft vendors.
