Saratoga Springs preparing for annual Chowderfest

Saratoga Springs is gearing up for its annual Chowderfest.

Restaurants in and around Saratoga Springs will soon be cooking up some chowder.

The 24th annual Chowderfest will be held Saturday February 11th. Dozens of restaurants will serve up four-ounce samples of their best chowder for $2 apiece.

Discover Saratoga organizes it every year and its president Darryl Leggieri says, “we’re excited to return to the original model, a one-day event, which has received very positive feedback from participating locations.”
Chowderfest is the biggest party of the winter in Saratoga Springs and bars and restaurants put all hands-on deck.
Typically, as many as 40,000 people fill the downtown area. There’ll be free shuttles from the Saratoga Casino hotel to downtown and back from 10:30 to 5.
Hotels are offering discounted rates for those looking to make a night of it.
