Location Description:

Wharf Fest takes place at the intersection of Jefferson and Taylor streets, at the famous Fisherman’s Wharf crab wheel sign, and on two blocks of Little Embarcadero street, between Taylor Street and Powell Street. The festival overlooks the San Francisco Bay, the Pier 43 promenade, and Alcatraz Island.

Event Description:

Wharf Fest returns to San Francisco’s iconic waterfront neighborhood. For the fifth year in a row, Fisherman’s Wharf invites Bay Area locals to come enjoy the neighborhood after the crowds of visitors have subsided but before the fabulous fall weather fades away. Festival-goers will enjoy a street fair, art vendors and more. At the most delicious part of the day, the Chowder Competition, Wharf restaurants will battle it out for the title of the Best Chowder at Fisherman’s Wharf.

Chowder Competition:

At Wharf Fest’s Chowder Competition, restaurants of Fisherman’s Wharf, California’s chowder capital, will battle it out for the title of Best Chowder at Fisherman’s Wharf. The 2017 winners were Fog Harbor, for the People’s Choice award, and Cioppino's, for the Judges’ Choice award. This year’s panel of local judges includes Bay Area food journalists and prominent political figures.

FAQ:

Q: What do I get for buying a Chowder Competition ticket?

A: Your Chowder Competition ticket will include individual tasting tickets for each restaurant. Typically, there are about 10 restaurants that participate. There will be one ticket for each restaurant. Each ticket will give you a 2 oz. sample of chowder; therefore, with one Chowder Competition Eventbrite ticket, you get 12, 2oz. chowder samples, for a total of 24 oz of chowder. This will likely be enough for your lunch. You will also receive a ballot to cast your vote for the Best Chowder at Fisherman's Wharf.

Q: How will I know who won?

A: The winning chowder restaurants will be announced at the end of the event and via our social media pages Twitter, @theWharfSF, and on our Facebook page.

Q: Can the ticket be split between two people?
A: Yes. You can distribute your tickets to whoever you like. They do not all need to be used by the same person. But only one ballot will be given.

Q: Can I bring my children or other guests who will not be eating chowder?
A: Yes, the Chowder Competition tasting is not gated off to the rest of the street fair, so tickets are not required to attend. Tickets are only required at the chowder booths for tasting and for casting ballots on the "People's Choice Winner."

Q: Can I bring my dog?
A: Yes, the entire festival is outdoors, so dogs are allowed.

Q: What if it rains?
A: This event is rain or shine. Chowder Competition tasting tickets will not be refunded based on weather conditions.

Q: If I can't come can I get a refund?
A: You can get a refund up to 7 days before the event. After that point, no refunds will be granted.
