Would you like them with a fish? On a tram? On a dish? You will like them here, we wish! Would you? Could you? On a plate? Don’t be late! Come and see them! Watch us cook! Give a look! Make haste to taste! You will like green eggs with ham….burgers!
So here’s the deal . . .
In recent years, the Big Green Egg has come to symbolize outdoor cooking. When asked what springs to mind when you hear the name Big Green Egg (a/k/a simply the Green Egg), often folks will answer – Dr. Seuss (you know, the Cat-in-the-Hat dude). It gets better . . .
For years, Athens, Texas has been recognized as the “Home of the Original Hamburger.” Sure, there have been others to make similar claims, but it’s our story and we’re sticking to it.
Anyway, partner the two – Dr. Seuss and Athens, Texas, and you get . . .
GREEN EGGS and HAM . . . BURGERS (and other stuff, too!)
. . . a friendly gastric get-together known to most as an Eggfest.
And my friend, you’ve lived a sheltered life if you haven’t been to an Eggfest! Participants come from across the country to showcase their personal recipes, meet with fellow Eggheads, and share some great food with the crowd!
Watch cooking demos throughout the day and experience the Big Green Egg firsthand with the opportunity to do your own cooking on the Eggs! A variety of vendors will also be on hand with many kitchen and grill-related products.
There is no registration fee to cook. Upon check-in at the event, each cook will receive a gift card from Brookshire’s and Morrison Supply to buy provisions with, and lots of other goodies provided by our vendors! Only registered Cooks will be admitted to the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center by pass. Standard admission fees are noted below.
In honor of this, our 5th Annual Athens Eggfest, individuals will pay only $5 at the event for a special wristband that allows you to taste as much as you’d like! Although we have required Pre-Event Registration previously, please note – we will NOT Pre-Register for the 2015 event. Everyone pays only $5 – even on the day of the event!
Individuals interested in owning a Big Green Egg cooker may purchase demo eggs at substantially discounted prices following the event. To learn how you can purchase one of these Demo Eggs, click HERE.
