Porkopolis Eggfest 2013
Saturday, July 13, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (EDT)
What is an Eggfest?
An Eggfest is a gathering of passionate followers of Big Green Egg Cookers. Raving fans of Big Green Eggs get together to share food, recipes, and fellowship at regional Eggfests. If this wasn't good enough we raise money for causes! The 2013 recipients are Panther Backpack Program and www.greeneggers.com. Panther Backpack program offers meals for needy children in the Little Miami School District. www.greeneggers.com is the original forum for Eggheads worldwide! This amazing body of eggers shares the secrets of eggheads!
There are two groups who attend Eggfests; cooks and tasters. Cooks bring their own food and cook amazing and varied offerings on provided demo eggs. Tasters show up and taste the amazing food that the cooks prepare on the eggs. There is no charge for cooks and a charge for adult tasters.

Demo eggs are sold at a discount under standard MSRP as they will have been used for the day of the event. Eggs will be available for pickup at 5PM on Saturday. New demo owners must be prepared that the eggs may still be hot and bring any blankets, rugs, straps, or cardboard needed to help get eggs home.
