The first weekend in October is always a great weekend to be on Long Beach Island. Every year, the Chamber of Commerce holds its Annual Chowderfest weekend in Beach Haven. This year it is scheduled for the weekend of October 1st and 2nd. The weekend kicks off on Sat, October 1st, with the Merchants Mart. Many local shops and vendors are on hand with their merchandise, most offering their best deals of the season. Also on Saturday, the Beach Haven Volunteer Fire Company holds its Annual Block Party, to raise funds for their station, and have live music, food and drinks. The main event of the weekend is held on Sunday, October 2nd. The Chowder Cook Off Classic, also known as Chowderfest has become a tradition here on LBI, where family and friends, locals and out-of-towners come to celebrate the end of the summer and usher in the off season. It includes many local restaurants, and the price of admission includes all of the Chowder you can eat. You will also be given the opportunity to vote for your favorite Chowder in both the red and the white categories, with the winners of the Cook Off announced at the end of the day. These events all feature live music, food and drinks, and even some fun activities for the kids. Admission to the Merchants Mart and the Fire House's Block Party are free. Admission to the Chowder Cook Off is as follows: General Admission Tickets - $20.00 Children's Tickets (Ages 4-12 ) - $10.00 VIP Tickets - $50.00 (VIP ticket includes a T-shirt and exclusive early admission at 10 am) You can go to this website and order tickets,https://t5.clicknprint.com/Online/?siteID=1502&cartID=7ba60c82-8e99-43dd-97a5-dbcebb2e36e9, or they can be purchased at the Chamber of Commerce office If you normally come to Chowderfest Weekend, we look forward to seeing you again.
