Virginia Beach, Virginia’s 5th Annual

Big Green Egg Fest

What is Eggfest?

This is an annual event dedicated to the Big Green Egg (BGE), the world’s best smoker and grill. “Eggheads”, families, and friends travel from all over to participate, learn and share their BGE “Eggsperience ”. All are welcome to join us for what is sure to be an “Eggcellent” festival. Whether you own a Big Green Egg, or just want to sample some incredible food, then Eggfest is for you. This annual festive family-oriented event also provides a good opportunity for someone thinking about buying a Big Green Egg to learn more about it and see firsthand the versatility of the intriguing ceramic cooker. Experienced Egg owners will be on hand to share their experiences.

Live entertainment and food will be provided by The Noblemen a non-profit organization which performs Noble Deeds for local kids who are in need of help.  Check them out at www.thenoblemen.org.  All profits from the price of admission and beer sales will benefit this great charitable organization.
