27th Annual “Chowderfest” – October 3rd & 4th!

It is our great honor to announce that the Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce has requested Weather NJ provide their 2015 LBI Chowderfest forecast for the 2nd Year in a row! This family fun festival features live music, activities and unlimited Chowder tasting with the opportunity for each ticket holder to vote for their favorite red and white chowder. The event is nestled in Beach Haven surrounded by beautiful views of the bay and plenty of year end discounted shopping.

The event is held rain or shine at the Taylor Avenue ball field, Ninth Street and Taylor Avenue in Beach Haven (across from Schooner’s Wharf and Bay Village) from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, October 4, 2015.

It has become a tradition for family and friends to gather together to say good bye to summer and welcome in the fall. Always the weekend before Columbus Day Weekend, this year join us on October 3, 2015, for the fabulous Merchant Mart (free admission) where local vendors offer the best deals of the season and Sunday for the Chowder Cook Off Classic.


The initial forecast for the 27th Annual Chowderfest is as follows:

We’re still a week-and-a-half from the event but long-range trends indicate temperatures in the mid-70s with light E/NE winds.
Traditionally that results in a gorgeous feel (not too hot-not too cold) which would be ideal for Chowderfest. As of right now, most rain looks to fall during next week, yielding a dry weekend. We’ll re-visit specific sky conditions (sun/clouds/rain) early next week. -JC
