Cape Cod Chowder Fest

The Cape Cod Chowder Fest opens at noon on Sunday, June 24, 2018, at the Melody Tent in downtown Hyannis. The festival is sponsored by WCOD and features the area’s best restaurants all competing for the opportunity to be named the makers of the Cape’s Best Clam Chowder and the recipient of the WCOD Chowder Bowl.

Visitors can sample the competitor’s chowders and listen to a some of the Cape’s best-known bands. Performing for the event will be the Daybreakers playing a mix of folk-rock, blues and rock and roll, and Carlin Tripp playing his own mix of laid-back folk/rock.

The festival has been going on for almost thirty years. Last year the best chowder winner was the Seaside Pub in Hyannis. In 2016, the nine restaurants that competed were The Sailing Cow Cafe in Dennis Port, Kelly’s on Main in Hyannis (closed), The Loft Restaurant and Bar in West Yarmouth, The Surfside Smokehouse in Plymouth-, Captain Kidd Restaurant in Woods Hole, Sandy’s Famous Seafood Restaurant in Buzzards Bay, Mattakeese Wharf in Barnstable, Seaside Pub in Hyannis, and the British Beer Company in Hyannis. The winners in 2016 were Mattakeese in first place, Seaside in second and British Beer in third.
