Ocean Wise® Chowder Chowdown: Vancouver


Past Champions. Sustainable Chowders & Craft Beer. Come Cast Your Vote.

For our 10th anniversary of Chowder Chowdown in Vancouver, we’re bringing back past Chowder Chowdown Champions to compete head-to-head for the title of All-Star Ocean Wise Chowder Chowdown Champion. Taste all the delectable original chowders, paired with local craft beer, and vote for your favourite, all in support of sustainable seafood.

All proceeds directly support the Ocean Wise sustainable seafood program, which helps to ensure that ocean life will be abundant for generations to come.

The Vancouver Trolley Company will be offering a complimentary shuttle service departing from Waterfront Station. The first shuttle begins loading at 6:30 p.m and departs Waterfront Station at 6:45 p.m. Shuttles depart every 15 minutes from Waterfront Station and the Vancouver Aquarium.

Please note: This is a 19+ event. All ticket sales are final.
