Ocean Wise National Chowder Chowdown Festival to kick off this month

Feb 1 2021, 5:31 pm

The annualĀ Ocean Wise National ChowderĀ 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 theĀ 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 chowderĀ andĀ supporting sustainable seafood and the hospitality industry all at the same time.

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

ā€œWith 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.ā€

Check out all the participatingĀ restaurants and retailers near you hereĀ and try these special creations out yourself!
