|Santa Cruz Clam Chowder Cook-Off and Festival||Food|
While Manhattan and New England may be the home of chowders, Santa Cruz is the home of a great clam chowder cook-off as chefs compete for the People's Choice and Best Chowder awards. More than just a culinary competition, the fun event has featured participants dressed as scuba divers, mermaids, and even as a "Clam Fairy."
The Cook-Off is an important fund-raiser for the City of Santa Cruz Parks and Recreation Department
Festival has a children/youth component.
