Early Bird Pepper Festival Tickets still available.
|Dear Sweet Pepper People, |
Only 11 days left until the 6th Annual Abundance Pepper Festival!
Some of you may not know what we are talking about and might even think it sounds weird, but let us describe what Pepper Festival is....your ticket includes all the local, gourmet, pepper dishes your heart desires made from 24 of the most creative, wonderful Chefs in the land. These Chefs love a challenge.
There is also a plethora of local micro-brews, local soda, coffee, wine (these are cash bar). There are 3 local bands, a kids zone to keep everyone happy and 25 educational booths about everything from sustainable t-shirts to sustainable funerals and everything in between!!
**We want to alert you to a couple of contests....there is the Fueling Flavor BEST DISH contest that Piedmont Biofuels
is offering...cash is involved.
There is the best pepper beer and best overall beer contest. We'll be picking 5 random beer lovers from the early attendees to be Beer Judges. They will "have" to taste all the beers and then come to consensus as a group and we'll award during the event. And of course who ever sells the most tickets becomes the Pepper KING & QUEEN. A HUGE accomplishment.
Seriously, why do we do this? It's about Climate Change Adaptation, seed saving & plant breeds, it's about the health of our planet, our people and it's about having a lot of fun...so come out and learn and eat and drink and enjoy each other...because this is what it's all about.
hot peppers & cold nights,
Tami, Jenny, Mary, Beth & Laurel + many volunteers
