1st Annual Chowder Challenge for Children

October 30, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Chowder Challenge for Children

The 1st Annual Chowder Challenge for Children is a challenge to determine who makes the best chowder in North Florida with all proceeds raised benefiting the Shriners Hospital for Children.  There will be up to 30 restaurants and/or groups participating.  The Chowder Challenge features four categories of Chowder:  New England, Minorcan Conch, Seafood, and Minorcan Clam (a St. Augustine favorite).

A panel of judges will consist of individuals chosen by the Chowder Challenge sponsors, as well as local dignitaries and culinary food experts.  They’ll judge each category as to a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner and then each of these winners will be announced and presented an award in each category of chowder.   There will also be a People’s Choice Award, which allows all attendees to fill out a ballot for their favorite participating restaurant.

Proceeds for the Shriners Hospital for Children are raised by purchasing $1 tickets for a sample of Chowder, as well as from the sale of beer, wine, mixed drinks, soda, water, hot dogs and chips.  Our Masonic Youth Program – The Rainbow Girls – will be selling the hot dogs, soda, water and chips.

The Chowder Challenges runs until 4pm with the band and DJ performing until 5pm.
