Event description
Bringing together Texas' top culinary leaders for a day of competition, discussion, demonstration, tastings, music, and more

About this Event

Now in its fourth year, The Butcher's Ball brings together Texas' top chefs, butchers, farmers and ranchers for a day of demonstrations, tastings, and competition at one of the state's most beautiful spots, Rockin' Star Ranch in Brenham.

Twenty Texas chefs will compete for The Golden Cleaver, utilizing proteins from Texas ranchers who engage in sustainable and responsible production practices, while another twenty culinary leaders will provide butchery workshops, panel discussions, open fire cooking demonstrations, cooking classes and product tastings featuring a large selection of Texas-based farms and ranches.

But that's not all! The Butcher's Ball is an incredible celebration of food, drink, music and art, meant to shine a light on our local culinary and creative communities, bring awareness to sustainable farming and ranching practices, and raise funds for our 2019 charitable partner Urban Harvest.
