Here's how it works: Chowderfest offers you the chance to choose the winners! Pick up a ballot form at any participating restaurant. Then taste as many different soups and chowders as you can & vote for your favorites! Turn in completed ballot forms at either the Saratoga Arts Council or the Saratoga Springs City Center and pick-up your official Chowderfest T-shirt for $10.
