Chinchorreo: Latin/Hispanic Food Crawl on September 30th

Downtown Chambersburg Inc. invites locals and tourists alike to savor the diverse culinary delights the city has to offer with their upcoming event, Chinchorreo: Latin/Hispanic Food Crawl on September 30th.

Those attending will receive a passport as part of their ticket, enabling them to sample 3-ounce dishes from over 8 Latin/Hispanic restaurants located in the heart of downtown Chambersburg. The food crawl offers two time frames for participants: either 1 PM to 4 PM or 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM. Event-goers can begin their flavorful journey by checking in at the Courthouse Plaza, where they will receive their culinary passport.

Each ticket ensures a combined total of at least 24oz of food from the various participating venues. While the passport covers samples, attendees are also encouraged to dive deeper into the menus and purchase full entrées at any restaurant they choose.

Moreover, ticket purchases will not only grant attendees a unique dining experience but will also contribute to the participating food locations and efforts towards downtown revitalization.

The event, aimed at highlighting the rich Hispanic and Latin flavors present in Chambersburg, has garnered support from local businesses. Special thanks have been extended to Manitowoc Cranes and Patriot Federal Credit Unions for sponsoring the food crawl.

For those eager to immerse themselves in this gastronomic adventure, tickets are available now. Join the community in celebrating and tasting the best of Downtown Chambersburg’s Hispanic and Latin cuisines.
