TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — ChowderFest is set to return to downtown Troy on October 9 starting at noon. The participating restaurants and chowder they are serving have been announced ahead of the event.

New this year, all chowder samples can be bought for $2 a la carte-style, so no ticket is required. Businesses in downtown Troy locations will serve chowder samples out of their storefronts, and those from outside downtown will serve in partnership with a downtown business.

The event also features entertainment and craft vendors. Online voting for People’s Choice chowder will be open until 8 p.m. Sunday, and winners will be announced on the Downtown Troy Business Improvement District social media pages at 9 p.m.
