One of the hottest events of the young spring in Stowe, VT, is the Chowderpalooza and Spring Artisan Market on Park Street in the historic downtown district. On Saturday May 25th, 2018, chefs and restaurants from across the area will assemble to “do battle” over the best chowder, and the winner is undoubtedly those who attend and place their vote for the People’s Choice Award.

The Event

Sponsored by Stowe Vibrancy and The Alchemist Brewing, this long-running event is a family favorite. For just $5 guests get to taste all of the local chowder creations, from traditional New England Clam Chowder to more unconventional (but equally delicious) chef’s creations. Make sure to try them all, then vote for your favorite!

Spring Artisan Market

As you stroll down scenic Main Street and Park Street towards the park you’ll come to the free Artisan’s market, a collection of local craftsman, specialty vendors, and artists with their incredible wares on display. Browse amongst the fantastic stylings of Vermont’s best potters, jewelers, painters, photographers, fashionistas, and food gurus. The kids will love getting their faces painted and visiting the other fun kiosks, and the entire family can enjoy live music in the park (past entertainers have included George Petit’s Groovy Quartet and Lesley Grant).
