Ocean Wise National Chowder Chowdown Festival to kick off this month

Feb 1 2021, 9:31 am

The annual Ocean Wise National Chowder Chowdown Festival is returning to Canada this month, and that means from February 1 to 28 folks across the country can get in on some deliciousness.

This year, chowder lovers from Prince Rupert, BC to Summerville, Nova Scotia can get a taste of the grub featured in this now-national sustainable seafood fundraiser for the Ocean Wise Seafood program.

The celebration of all things sustainable seafood chowder is doing things a little differently this year to ensure it is COVID-19 friendly in all aspects.

Patrons can head to participating restaurants and locations near them to purchase some chowder (or order takeout/delivery where available), and a portion of the proceeds from each bowl will go towards supporting the not-for-profit program.


It’s a true win-win, as you’ll be enjoying some delicious chowder and supporting sustainable seafood and the hospitality industry all at the same time.

“COVID-19 has impacted so many people and businesses, including the Ocean Wise Seafood program and our partners,” said Sophika Kostyniuk, director of Fisheries and Seafood at Ocean Wise Conservation Association.

“With the new National Chowder Chowdown Festival format we hope to be able to support our partners while also generating the much-needed funds to keep the Ocean Wise Seafood program going strong.”

Check out all the participating restaurants and retailers near you here and try these special creations out yourself!
