Troy’s ChowderFest to be Held on October 9th

TROY – Coming back to Troy on October 9th is ChowderFest, presented by Troy BID. This time there are no tickets, just visit participating locations to purchase soup and chowder throughout Downtown Troy. Featuring live music, kids’ activities and more, attendees are welcomed to explore the walkable district sampling chowder, soup, and other delicious treats from a diverse group of restaurants and purveyors. The event is free to attend and will feature $2 four-ounce samples for purchase at all participating locations.

Businesses in Downtown Troy locations will serve out of their storefronts, while cooks from outside the downtown perimeter will serve in partnership with a downtown business. Entertainment and craft vendors will be located throughout the district as well.

The 16th Annual Downtown Troy ChowderFest is sponsored by Troy Redevelopment Foundation, CDTA, Callanan Industries, CD Perry, Times Union, Troy Innovation Garage, Stewart’s Shops, and Westminster Crackers.


The event will begin at noon.
