Gatlinburg celebrates its Appalachian culinary past with the Gatlinburg Beans 'n Cornbread Blast! presented by Bush Brothers Beans. Downtown Gatlinburg will be transformed into a festive, fun-filled scene with games, foot-stompin' mountain bluegrass music and, of course, lots of Beans and Cornbread. Vendors will compete against each other with their special recipes and you get to help decide the winner! Compete to win in our first annual Corn Hole Tournament and at the same time help support our local Humane Society. Bush Brothers Beans will be featured throughout the event. A small fee will allow participants to sample all the different recipes while supplies last. It will be a 'Rootin, Tootin, Good Time!'
May 14, 2016 International Biscuit Festival - Knoxville, Tennessee
The International Biscuit Festival is a celebration of that most perfect of foods – the Biscuit. The Festival combines food, fun and entertainment to create a unique destination event. The International Biscuit Festival was begun in 2009 by a group of local Biscuit lovers who wanted to share Knoxville’s Biscuit heritage with the world. What started as a fun gathering for friends and family has grown into a nationally recognized food festival. In 2012, the Southern Food Writing Conference was added to the schedule to bring together authors, chefs, publishers, publicists and others who love Southern food and those who write about it. Each year, the Conference brings together a stellar group of speakers in an intimate setting to share their passion for writing about food in the South. Attendance: 20,000
