29th Annual Cape Cod Chowder Festival this Sunday

Treat Dad to some tasty chowder this Sunday in Hyannis

This Sunday, June 21st, a Cape Cod tradition continues as the Cape Cod Melody Tent hosts the 29th Annual Cape Cod Chowder Festival, sponsored by 106 WCOD.  It’s a great way to spend Father’s Day this year with your favorite Dad.

The Chowder Festival is the recipe for a perfect day of sipping and slurping samples of chowder from many of the Cape’s best restaurants, all competing for the coveted “WCOD Chowder Bowl.”   Bring the family and spend the afternoon savoring the “souper” seaside flavor of quintessential Cape Cod, while being serenaded by some of the best bands on the Cape.  

This year, WCOD has cooked up a delicious blend of food and music.  Restaurants competing for the title of Best Cape Cod Clam Chowder include: 

In addition to the battle for Best Chowder, the restaurant that earns the most votes overall will win a $1,000 cash prize and a matching $1,000 donation to the charity of their choice! 

Judging is based on popular vote, so bring your appetite and cast your ballot!  Attendees will decide who will win in each category: Best Cape Cod Clam Chowdah; Best Non-Traditional Chowder; Best Presentation & Best Staff.

Live entertainment, brought to you by the Melody Tent and The Cheap Seats on WCIB/Cool 102, features Pink Cadillac, the Fred Clayton Band, and more great bands performing under the Tent.

A children’s play area will be hosted by Clown Around Town.

Once again, Four Seas Ice Cream will keep everyone cool with some of the best frozen treats on the Cape! 

This year’s Chowder Festival is sponsored by Paine’s Patio, Comcast, and S&J Exco.
