National Chowder Chowdown Festival
February 1, 2021 - February 28, 2021
Delicious sustainable seafood chowders coming to restaurants across Canada this February as Chowder Chowdown fundraiser transforms into national festival. Proceeds support Ocean Wise sustainable seafood program.
Ocean Wise (November 19, 2020): New festival alert! For the month of February 2021, Ocean Wise Seafood is launching its first ever National Chowder Chowdown Festival. Between February 1 and 28, Canadians will be able to purchase delicious sustainable seafood chowders at restaurants, retailers and venues across Canada with part-proceeds supporting Ocean Wise’s not-for-profit sustainable seafood program.
Participating restaurants and full details will be available at ocean.org/seafood in January.
Overfishing is one of the greatest threats to our world’s oceans with grave impacts on the food web and the livelihoods of millions of people worldwide. But by simply changing the seafoods we eat, we can stop overfishing and help the oceans recover.
Since 2005, the Ocean Wise symbol next to a seafood item at a restaurant or grocery store has been assurance for Canadians that it is an ocean-friendly choice. And now, all you have to do to support this important conservation program is to slurp delicious chowders this February! And you’ll also be supporting local restaurants while you do it. Chowders will be available for dine-in, delivery or take out across Canada!
