What is "EggFest"?: The Eggest is a gathering of the Big Green Egg owners, admirers, and dedicated Egg-Chefs (Eggheads). Its a chance to make new friends, eat some of the best food you will ever taste, learn some new grilling and smoking tricks,.... a big Egghead party! The Big Green Egg is the star of the show and we will have dozens of brand new Big Green Eggs set up for those that want to show off their cooking skills as well as a few Green Eggs set up for demonstration and for potential new Eggheads to check out. If you own a Big Green Egg or not, this is the perfect opportunity to come out and taste just how incredible (inFredible?) the food is when "Egg'ed". Big Green Egg sales reps and other "Eggsperts" will be on hand to demonstrate the capabilities of this great cooker. This is a culinary experience you will not forget!
Who will be there : Many Eggheads from the Egghead forum will be in attendance as well as Fred and his staff, many local Eggheads and Egg users, and perhaps some special guests. There will also be some "newbies" and some "potential newbies" checking out the Egg and all that it has to offer. One thing for sure...the EGG (the star of the show) will be in attendance
Where will the Eggs and Eggheads be? (The Eggfest location!): At our facility at 212-214 W. Lancaster Avenue, Shillington, Pa. 19607

Here'a our recap of our 2011 Eggfest !
Our Best Eggfest yet! Over 130 people registered, many cooked, great demonstrations and entertainment ... here's some comments from attendees and our slideshow from the 2011 event!
Hi Fred, Just wanted to say my wife and I had a great time Saturday at the Mid Egglantic Fest and are looking forward to the next event! (David, Hanover , PA)
My first EggFest - over and done! What a blast! Really have to give comps to Fred, Toby and the rest of the crew. The entire event ran like it was on greased rails. I don't know that there was anything that happened that wasn't planned. Just ... wow! Very well done, indeed.
(Scott, Newport News, VA)
Hi Fred, Vickie and I just wanted to thank you, Toby and the rest your staff for a great fest. Our new egg traveled well and has now joined the other four on the patio. We had a great time in spite of the heat. As usual Dee was the star of the show you certainly have a "keeper" in that girl. Looking forward to seeing you in Cumberland, Maryand. That event is the 19th and 20th of August.(Larry & Vicky, Suffolk, VA)
THANX! I really enjoyed the day. Great food/great people! Worth the ride from Jersey. Gotta tell ya - Gregg's deboned stuffed chicken was da bomb! (Pat , Phillipsburg, NJ)
The fest was a great time, Thanks for having it! (Rob and Jenn, Annapolis MD - and their dog Louie)
Went to my first Eggfest today, at Fred's place. Right away I could tell it was a good time had by all, but the problem was I hadn't seen the schedule, and I didn't get there until 2:20, with just a bit of time to see what's up before everything started shutting down. Hmmm. Did have a pleasant chat with Fred and a few others, and I plan on getting to more Eggfests, but I gotta remember to get moving earlier in the day. (Dan, Glenmorre, PA)
Also, we are changing the format for our Eggfest. We will not, as we have in the past, invited the general public. This year, we will be having a more intimate, traditional Eggfest with advance registration etc. etc. where we get together and cook for each other and share time with our friends and fellow Eggheads.
*** NOTE ..for those of you who want demo eggs ... WE USUALLY HAVE THEM SO CALL US TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS YOU DO NOT NEED TO WAIT FOR OUR EGGFEST. To make arrangements call the SmokinguitarPlayer at 800-677-2882
