25th Annual Chowderfest & Brews - May 25, 2014

Memorial Day Weekend in Waterville Valley boasts New England style chowda for the sampling.  Area restaurants bring their chowders out to the heart of Town Square in the hopes of winning the coveted prize of the Golden Clam Award.  Booths will be open from 12 to 2pm with tickets available throughout the morning.  Accompanied by a free rock, blues, and country concert by the Dusty Gray Band starting at 12 pm.  This years chowder contenders are the Waterville Valley Conference Center, The Lantern, The Coyote Grill, Blue Moon Cafe, Snowy Owl, and Jugtown Country Store.
 
Guests receive ample-sized taste of each chowder and a ballot to vote for their favorite concoction with their admission fee.  Admission is $7.50 for adults (ages 13+), $5 for children (12 and under).
 
Don’t let the sampling stop there!  Guests 21+ head over to the beer tent for a swig of the local brews out of New England by Smuttynose including the new Bouncy House IPA.  The brews will be served from 12 to 4pm. 

Stick around for more live music starting at 6pm from Jimmy & Marchelle.  Preview: jimmyandmarcelle.com/
