Seafood Chowder Competition - Saturday


A torrent of succulent soups, bisques and chowders will deluge visitors at Nanaimo's inaugural Seafood Chowder Competition on Saturday, September 20th, 11:30-3:30 at Country Club Centre. Under tents in the Country Club Centre parking lot, this family event is presented by Lucky's Liquor Store and the Greater Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce.

Up to 16 'Chowder Chefs' from local restaurants will offer their entries to a judging panel of event sponsors, presenters, media and local dignitaries. A 'Peoples Choice Award' will also be presented at the end of the day's tastings after public feedback weighs in.

Live Entertainmentis provided by "The Big Mess" - an amazing local father and son duo. A bouncy castle, face painting and lemonade stand are part of the family day too.

Chowder samples are priced at 12 for $12 with cash donations to Loaves & Fishes highly encouraged. Admission for the entertainment is free and advance passes for a dozen chowder samplings are available through participating restaurants, at Lucky's Liquor Store, or the Chamber of Commerce offices on Bowen Road. Individual sampling tickets are also on sale for $2 each at the event in front of Lucky's.

See you there 'chowda heads'! For more information, call the Chamber of Commerce at 250-756-1191 or check out our Facebook page.
