Clam Chowder Dinner, Friday, February 6, 2015
Over 1500 people enjoy the Clam Chowder Dinner, held early in the year at the Expo building of the Salinas Valley Fairgrounds. Featuring the famous Lloyd Atwater clam chowder recipe, diners get all-you-can-eat clam chowder, rolls, fresh salad and homemade pie for dessert. A wine and soda bar is available. Dinner guests get to place bids at the silent auction featuring a variety of antiques, photo replicas from the museum’s collection and home baked pies and cakes. The Clam Chowder Dinner has become a community favorite.
