Compete and Eat at Breakfest 2017
Do you love breakfast food? Do you dream about brunch? Breakfest 2017 is the event for you. This year’s third annual festival is in the Southern College of Optometry lot (in the Medical District) on September 23, 2017. Tickets are $10 each,
and I have one pair to give away. Scroll a bit to find out how to win.
Congrats to our winner, Summer! Thanks to everyone who entered.
Attending The Festival
Fest ticket holders will be able to enjoy food trucks with brunch menu items available for purchase, brunch-y cocktails for purchase, games like cornhole and life-size Jenga, live entertainment, vendors like Sache and Fan Essentials, the Memphis Grizzlies and more, plus a mobile TV trailer so you can watch All The Sports.
The event benefits the Urban Bicycle Food Ministry.
HOW TO WIN: To win pair of tickets ($10 each, $20 value), just leave me a comment on this post telling me your favorite breakfast dishes in town. I will do a random drawing on Monday, August 28 at 9 a.m.
About The Competition
BreakFest is primarily a cooking competition, where local foodies will judge teams in five categories: Best Omelet, Best Breakfast Sandwich, Breakfast Sweets, Anything Goes, and Bacon Lovers. Check out photos from past festivals here and here. You’ll need to have a friend with a tent who’s willing to share or to be on a team yourself for access to that competition food.
So, if think you cook the best omelets, or have a secret recipe for the perfect pancake, or make a mean bacon-wrapped something, you might want to get a cooking team together and sign up.
There will also be a Bloody Mary Contest for local restaurants. If you want to taste and vote on your favorite Bloody Marys, get a VIP ticket for $35
Tickets are on sale. This event WILL sell out (it has every year), so get yours ASAP.
