New England's oldest and largest chowder tasting event turns 30 this year and the list of participating restaurants is set! Celebrate with us on Saturday at Prescott Park in Portsmouth and taste some of the best chowder the seacoast has to offer.

Every year dozens of restaurants serve up hundreds of gallons of tasty chowder as they compete for Best Chowder; an award determined by your vote. Other awards include Judge's Choice, and Best Booth.

This year's participating restaurants are:

Roger's Redliner Diner

Newicks Lobster House

Portsmouth Gas Light Co.

Ri Ra Irish Pub

Portsmouth Brewery

Bob's Clam Hut

Billy's Chowder House

Martingale Wharf

British Beer Company

7th Settlement Brewery

*Goad Island Oysters are bringing a raw oyster bar!

The tasting begins at 11:30AM until the chowder is gone. Admission is a suggested donation of $14 for adults, and $7 for children 12 and under.
