On the first Saturday of June every year, the Annual WOKQ Chowder Festival kicks off our summer season here at Prescott Park Arts Festival. A staple of summer in Portsmouth, NH with dozens of restaurants worth of piping hot chowder recipes to enjoy, live music and refreshing drinks. This event is always an incredibly great time from 11:30 am until the chowder runs out!

This taste-testing affair has become a New England institution for chowder lovers in the tri-state region. An impeccable roster of amazing restaurants throughout the seacoast join us to introduce their mouthwatering chowder recipes to compete for the Best Chowder title and to take home the Golden Ladle!  Recipes in the past have included Smoked Scallop Chowder, Manhattan Chowder, Vegetarian Chowder, Corn Chowder and Spicy Seafood Chowder.
