“I’m excited to bring Chowderfest back with the new format we incorporated last year,” said Olivia Clemente, Executive Director of the Downtown Troy Business Improvement District. “The concept of this format was not only to bring more foot traffic to our restaurants, but to get everyone walking around Downtown Troy and explore streets they may never walk down on a normal day. It’s really all about getting to know our area and the businesses.”
