Stowe Vibrancy's now famous Chowderpalooza competition kicks off our summer events calendar in delicious style! At least a dozen area restaurant chefs will create and serve up their favorite chowders and they want you to be the judge! A $5 bracelet is your entry to chowder heaven. In addition, Spring Art on Park showcases fine Vermont artisans, artists, craft makers, designers and specialty food purveyors. Stroll over to the Village Green for live music by George Petit Groovy Quartet, get your face painted and enjoy family-friendly activities. Special thanks to our presenting sponsor, The Alchemist and to Castleton Crackers for donating delicious crackers to enjoy alongside all the chowder.
