Chowder Social Auction & Fundraiser

Sunday, April 28, evening of Fun, Food & Fundraising!

The Chowder Social is the Foss Waterway Seaport's only in-person fundraising event. The evening includes a reception with live entertainment, passed hors d'oeuvres, cocktails, games, a silent and live auction! The Chowder Social is a casual dinner full of seven delicious chowders to enjoy from our local catering partners.

This year’s goal for the Chowder Social is to raise funding for operational and maintenance expenses for the historic Foss Waterway Seaport building, ensuring the continuation of our mission to bring Tacoma’s maritime heritage to everyone in our South Sound community and beyond.
