As the 14th annual Saratoga Chowderfest comes to a close, we bid farewell to another hugely successful Saratoga festival. Our family enjoyed meandering through the busy streets and in and out of our favorite local haunts to sample some of the most interesting chowders this festival has ever seen!
The winners had seafood as a common ingredient; lobster, crab and shrimp seem like a winning combo.

Most chowder served — The Parting Glass not surprising as they usually win! We didn’t make it down to Parting Glass but I heard positive reports about their shrimp & crab chowder.
Overall it was another great Saratoga Chowderfest. I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! As always, the lines were long, the streets were packed, and we all got cold, but we’ll definitely be back for Chowderfest 2013!
