Event Details for EGGfest 2017


WHAT IS EGGFEST ALL ABOUT?

EGGfest is an event dedicated to the Big Green Egg and this year will be better than ever! Participants travel from all over to share in the fun and festivities while innovative EGGhead Cooks showcase their talents on "The Ultimate Cooking Experience". Whether you're already an experienced EGGhead, a curious novice, or simply love food, the Smokin' the Ozarks EGGfest will provide you with lots of fun, entertainment, and a FULL belly!

MOST IMPORTANTLY, EGGfest is a charity event that directly benefits the Keystone Kops Unit of Springfield. All net proceeds from the 2017 "Smokin' the Ozarks" EGGfest go directly to this fantastic organization. The Keystone Kops are a unit of the Abu Ben Adhem Shriners of Southwest Missouri and provide lodging and transportation assistance for children and their families during their care at Shrine Hospitals across the area.

Supporting a good cause never tasted so good!

Imagine a festival with hundreds of people sharing the love, passing out delicious food, and enjoying the party atmosphere! There will be amazing food coming off the EGGs all day, so it's a good practice to pace yourself and ask each EGG chef what makes their recipe special!

It's suggested that Tasters arrive between 10:00 AM and 11:00 AM in order to have the "full" EGGfest EGGsperience! Food will be coming off the EGGs continuously throughout the day, so there isn't necessarily a "peak time" for you to arrive. Regardless of when you show up, you'll soon learn why the Big Green Egg is often copied but never matched in culinary excellence!


What is EGGfest All About?
