Chowdah Challenge 2017 is here!

Chowdah Challenge 2017

We’re gearing up for the 24th Annual Freeport Community Services Chowdah Challenge on Saturday, October 7th from 11 am to 2 pm!

Chowdah Challenge competitorsIt’s a fantastic day at the L.L.Bean Home store where big crowds of locals and visitors from afar come to sample and vote for Freeport Maine’s best chowder. Each year local restaurants generously donate their traditional and gourmet clam and seafood chowders to benefit Freeport Community Services programs.

Ten restaurants will compete for two coveted awards: The People’s Choice Award and the Judges’ Award for “Best Chowdah”. Cost is $10/per person, and all proceeds will go to support FCS. Last year, we had 600 people sample great chowder and we sold out!
