11th Troy Chowderfest set for a rollout this Sunday

The annual Troy Chowderfest just keeps growing. This year's event, the 11th annual, is set for this Sunday, October 8, from noon to 4 p.m., but it is not being limited to Monument Square.

The fest, which in recent years has been drawing as many as 15,000 visitors to downtown, will allow them to purchase tasting tickets for visits not only to vendor stalls set up around the square but also at various restaurants serving at their establishments.

Numerous retailers also will participate with a citywide sidewalk sale to go along with luve music and family activities. Tickets will be sold for $1 for each three-ounce sample in Monument Square, Barker Park, and the Green Island Bridge parking lot from through 3:30 p.m. Credit cards will not be accepted, and there will be no refunds for unused tickets.

A shuttle will be making loops through downtown, with stops at or near each of the participating restaurants. Further information on entertainment, parking, and general rules are available on the event website.
