Chowdah Fest Early Bird Tickets Now on Sale

GT Fish & Oyster chowder in a cup.

Want to eat chowder while sailing the ocean blue? Well, it's a lake, not the ocean, and it won't be leaving the dock, but it's as close as March is going to get. The Columbia Yacht Club will hold its third annual Chowdah Fest that day, with chefs like Giuseppe Tentori (GT Fish & Oyster), Kevin Hickey (Allium), Ryan McCaskey (Acadia), Matt Troost (Three Aces), and more cooking up chowder on board the Yacht Club's 1940s vintage ship. Guests will enjoy chowder, local wine and beer and more, and get to vote on the Audience Choice Award for best chowder. It's $40, with proceeds going to the Sea Scouts youth program, and early-bird tickets are on sale now here.
