Taste chowder from local restaurants during the Port of Olympia Chowder Challenge.



Five dollars (if you’re lucky) will get you one bowl of delicious clam chowder from a restaurant.  For those in attendance at the Port of Olympia Boatswap & Chowder Challenge at Swantown Marina on Saturday, $5 bought you a mug full of chowder from 12 competing local restaurants.  Along with live music, an elevated/on land fishing pond and a bounce house for children, visitors had a chance to look, trade or buy maritime equipment and boats in a swap sale setting.

The following restaurants competed in the event: Fatso’s Bar & Grill, Firecreek Grill, Fish Tale Brewpub, Hawk’s Prairie Casino, Lucky Eagle Casino, Nisqually Red Wind Casino, Paprika Café & Catering, Red Lion Hotel – West Water Restaurant, South Bay Pub & Eatery, The Sidewalk Café, Tug Boat Annie’s and Vern’s Foods & Farm.
