This year’s event will feature the area’s best chefs and restaurants competing with one another to determine who has the “Best Chowder” on the Space Coast. “With a Twist”- means other food vendors may compete with their specialty dishes, appetizers or desserts. Awards will be presented to participating restaurants and organizations. The "People's Choice Chowder" will be the exclusive chowder served at Sea Fest in Port Canaveral.
