Chowdah Challenge 25 Years

Freeport Community Services is teaming up once again with L.L. Bean and Visit Freeport to host our annual Chowdah Challenge at the 20th Annual Freeport Fall Festival.

Buy your ticket now, and skip the line! Tickets are $12.00, giving you access to sample all 10 chowder variations! Your tickets will be waiting for you at the entrance.




The Visit Freeport Fall Festival is October 5-7th and the FCS Chowdah Challenge is on Saturday, October 6th in the L.L. Bean Discovery Park area (between the flagship and home stores) starting at 11:00 AM to whenever the chowder runs out! Last year, we had 600 people participate and sample some of the best chowdah from 10 area restaurants.

Gritty's at Chowdah Challenge 2018We will have a judge’s award and a people’s choice award. Last year’s winners were Gritty’s for the Judge’s Choice Award and Freeport Café for the People’s Choice Award. Who will it be this year?

Over the years, our event has grown and continues to be a success thanks to local business support and wonderful residents and visitors who stop by each year to taste great chowder and support us. All proceeds benefit FCS.

We are excited about this milestone 25th year of the Challenge!
