Is an eggfest like Eggs by the Bay etc. the same as Eggtoberfest? Also how many people usually attend these events? Are they competitions? How far do people travel to attend?

    EGGtoberfest is the original and the biggest. We have close to 1800 folks and have about 200 grills cooking at the same time. It is not a competition, it's just folks having a good time cooking great food. Folks come from all over the World and all corners of the U.S.
  • That is cool. I bet it is a blast. I would like to try to make it there some day.

    People travel even for the smaller ones. Check the whose coming for the Ocala fest. Canada, Maine, Wisconsin, Virginia etc,,,,,. Great times but Egtoberfest is the mother of them all.

    Better yet check the Who's Coming list for Eggs by the Bay...

    Quick Smitty update it...
  • don't need to wait for Eggtoberfest. Randy and I are in AZ...last year we traveled to Ocala, OKC, Waldorf, Denver, Osweego, and Atlanta and Tempe (Phoenix). Once you go to get to meet all the forums guys/gals you've been chatting with...and instantly you are part of the family. By all means...there are NO competitions. We all share and share alike. Find one that's close to you...go observe...and then the next one...cook something simple....or go and observe again.
    Looking forward to meeting you sometime.

    Don't forget that OKC has the Iron Egg Chef, Ocala will have a Chili/Cornbread Throwdown and Eggs by the Bay will have it's People's choice.

    Just friendly things though :)
  • Thanks. I would like to go to one of these events sometime.
