The annual Chowder Festival offers some of the best Chowder the Seacoast has to offer.

Each year, more than 4,000 people help kick off the Prescott Park Arts Festival summer season by enjoying more than 500 gallons of piping hot chowder served up for tasting.

Be your own judge and vote for your favorite chowder from more than a dozen restaurants as they compete for the Best Chowder title.

Sponsored in part by Taste of the Seacoast magazine, this taste-testing event has become a New England staple for chowder lovers in the three-state region. Many restaurants use this event to try out new recipes before adding them to their menu, offering a great chance to sample the newest in Chowder fare in the area. Recipes in the past have included Smoked Scallop Chowder, Manhattan Chowder, Vegetarian Chowder, Corn Chowder, and Spicy Seafood Chowder.

Restaurants compete for your vote to be honored by being awarded Best Chowder, decided by the public. Other awards include Judge's Choice and Best Booth.

The Chowder festival also offers live music, tons of fun, and a beautiful setting like none other.


Enjoy TWO festivals for the price of one! Take our FREE ferry, generously provided by Portsmouth Harbor Cruises, between our Chowder Festival and the 3rd Annual Piscataqua Waterfront Festival!

Also, for an additional cost, enjoy FRESH shucked oysters provided by Little Bay Oyster Company!
