This winter-time festival (every February) is a huge hit and one to brave the weather for! The main event is the Charity Chowder Cookoff – over 15 local restaurants from Connecticut and Rhode Island will serve up their brew of chowder. Tastes are 1 ticket each. Tickets can be bought at several locations throughout the village for $1 each or 12 for $10. All proceeds support the Emergency Food Pantry at the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center. Each restaurant will have a sponsoring shop in Olde Mistick Village where space will be set aside to serve chowder.
Voting will be done by all participants attending the event, and ballots will be supplied at all ticket locations for the People’s Choice Awards. Additional awards will be presented by the Celebrity Media Judges for: (1) Most Creative Chowder; (2) Heartiest Chowder; (3) Best Use of Regional Ingredients; (4) Best Overall Flavor.
