Fall is celebrated throughout many cultures around the world for its harvest and bounty and we have a lot to be grateful for in Barron Park. Please join your local community friends and neighbors at the Barron Park Association Fall Foodie Festival with cooking competition and Taiko cultural entertainment.
Date: Sunday, November 12th
Time: 1pm to 5pm
Location: Barron Park Elementary School multipurpose room
Theme: Fall festival food and entertainment from different cultures around the world
Special Taiko drum and music performance by the highly talented and respected Kristy Ohsiro.
Inspired by the popular Food Network TV show Chopped, we will have a cooking competition where individuals or teams will receive a basket of secret ingredients typically used in fall cultural dishes around the world. They will take those ingredients to combine with their own and have up to one week to prepare a three course meal (appetizer, main course, dessert). The contestant dishes will then be brought to the event and evaluated by judges to determine a winner.
– Multicultural pot luck
– High end foodie samples from local vendors
It is going to be loud, proud, optimistic and fun. Show off your cooking skills and enjoy some great food and festivities. Everybody is welcome but please consider supporting the BPA with donations, membership or volunteering. It takes a lot of resources to make these events happen so if you would like to participate or help out as a contestant, judge, planner, food contributor or event staff please register on the event sign up sheet.
We look forward to seeing you there!
