Chowder Days

Columbus Day Weekend

Nothing is better than a hot bowl of chowder on a cool autumn day and Chowder Days at Mystic Seaport is just the place to indulge. Our à la carte menu is sure to satisfy all appetites and features a variety of chowders and bisques, clam fritters and other fall favorites, as well as apple fritters, berry pie, mulled cider, and other seasonal delights for dessert.

The weekend’s family-fun festivities include live music, hay rides, games on the Village Green, scarecrow activities, face painting, a paint-a-gourd craft, and kids’ crafts in the Children’s Museum.

Explore exhibits, take a final ride of the season aboard steamboat Sabino, and see the stars of the autumn sky inside the Treworgy Planetarium. Climb aboard the newly restored Charles W. Morgan, now back at her berth at Chubb’s Wharf after her 38th Voyage. Enjoy Columbus Day Weekend with family and friends at Mystic Seaport!
