About this event

BLIND PRE-SALE TICKETS AVAILABLE NOW THROUGH AUGUST 15

THE COMPLETE LIST OF PARTICIPATING CHEFS, CULINARY LEADERS, FARMS, RANCHES, AND MUSIC WILL BE RELEASED IN AUGUST.

Celebrating its 5th 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 dozens more culinary leaders will provide butchery workshops, panel discussions, open fire cooking demonstrations, cooking classes and product tastings featuring a large selection of independent, Texas-based farms and ranches.

But that's not all! The Butcher's Ball is a one-of-a-kind 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 local food-related charities.
