Don’t miss Dinner of Champions, the most exciting culinary experience of the year with emcee Nicole Agee from KCRG-TV9!

Seven of Cedar Rapids’ best chefs will compete to be crowned champion and you are the judge. Enjoy ¼ size entrée dishes created by each of the seven chefs then cast your vote for best dish. Will Zeppelins three-peat or will a new champion be crowned? You decide. Competitors include 350 First, Black Sheep Social Club, The Cedar Grille, The Class Act, Pig & Porter, Popoli, and Zeppelins.

There will also be more than a dozen tasting stations for you to explore that feature local breweries and local producers like The Sausage Foundry and Dan & Debbie’s Creamery. Pair all of those amazing flavors with craft cocktail samples from the mixology competition and if you still have room, treat yourself to The Pig & Porter’s winning dessert as voted on by a panel of judges. All for only $30! Or purchase a VIP ticket for an exclusive tasting hour with Cobble Hill and Cedar Ridge.
