I went to the Ipswich Chowder Festival in Ipswich MA. It is near the Ebsco building (which has some nice art on some of the walls of the building).
It is in a nice little town of Ipswich MA. It is a quaint little town. It is a nice place to explore.
Here is the photo of the main tent that had the different restaurants giving samples of their chowders. I tasted everyone of them. Most were good. There was a couple that I did not really consider to be chowders but they were also good. One chose which one that you liked best and voted for that one.
I did not think I would be full when I tried the samples. There were many places giving samples. It is easy to fill up on them.
I liked the variety of styles. There was a variety of flavors. It was fun trying them all.
Below are photos of each of the 'stations' that gave out samples of their chowder. One can barely see the name of the company / restaurant that made the chowder. Perhaps one could enlarge each to read the name.
There were other tents / parts of the festival. One crossed the bridge and there were crafts and such in a small park. There was a historic house that had an art gallery show. There were a couple of classic cars at a garage (seemed sad few saw the cars, probably more interested in the chowder than anything else). There was a martial arts demonstration too. There was food for those not really interested in chowders.
