Best barbecue party you can find!
Following multiple meetings of the Moonbow Eggfest Planning Committee, it is with great disappointment that we announce the cancellation of the 2020 Moonbow Eggfest scheduled for September 12, 2020. We made this difficult decision while monitoring updates from county, state and federal public safety and health agencies regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. We did not feel that we could comply with the governors’ recommendations and guidelines, and that it would be impossible to enforce masks and social distancing due to the nature of the event. The safety and well-being of our participants, volunteers, family, friends and community is of the utmost importance to us.
We will announce a date for the 2021 event soon! Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you next year! Stay safe and healthy Eggheads!
What is eggfest?
An EggFest is a venue for Big Green Egg enthusiasts to showcase their talents on the Big Green Egg komodo style ceramic cooker. It is also an opportunity for those who have been contemplating a Big Green Egg to sample the foods and talk to other egg enthusiasts. In other words, the EggFest is a good excuse to get a bunch of people together and make some great food. Cooks come from all over the country to showcase their talents and the attendees get the pleasure of being the audience.
In September of 2014, a small group of Big Green Egg fans joined forces with the Corbin Tourism and Convention Commission in an effort to show off Corbin’s charm and hospitality while delighting Big Green Egg enthusiast and “foodies” from around the world. Home of the Original KFC and the Moonbow at Cumberland Falls State Park, Corbin seemed like a natural fit to bring chefs and guests alike together for good times, great fun and amazing food. Hence, the Moonbow Eggfest was born.
Corbin hosts its Annual Moonbow Eggfest on Depot Street in downtown Corbin. Forty Chefs from all over the country will be coming in to prepare and share their culinary treats cooked on their Big Green Egg clay cooker. Event patrons will have an opportunity to taste a wide variety of recipes, some of which include smoked meats, breads and baked goods, pizza, stir fry, casseroles, dips, roasted vegetables, macaroni and cheese and more, directly off of the Egg.
Do I have to own a Big Green Egg to be a Cook?
You may be wondering if you need to own a Big Green Egg to be a cook, and the answer is no. There are demo Eggs available for people who wish to take an Egg for a test run. You never know, you may begin to turn into an Egg Head yourself! If you do, don’t worry, there will be Demo Eggs available for purchase at discounted rates.
