Oct. 13: St. Ambrose Fall Festival features Minorcan clam chowder and family fun

The annual St. Ambrose Fall Fair will be held from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 13, 2019 at St. Ambrose Catholic Church, 6070 Church Road, in Elkton, from State Road 207. 

The most popular item at the fair is the Minorcan clam chowder, prepared by Mary Ellen Masters and her chowder crew, which features the famous Datil pepper and a recipe that has been passed down from generation to generation. More than 100 gallons are made for each fair in the spring and in the fall — and it all sells out every time!

Other menu items include barbecue pork dinners, barbecue pork sandwiches, sausage dogs, hot dogs, French fries, boiled peanuts, ice cream, soda, water, and beer. Admission is FREE.
