How the Event Works
Battle it out with some of the area’s best chefs for a chance to win best dish in 1 of 4 categories-Best Soup, Best Appetizer, Best Entree, and Best Dessert. One lucky participant will win the People’s Choice Award for having the crowd’s favorite dish for the evening.
This year’s Mississippi Chef Challenge will take place on Thursday, September 21, 2017 at the Biloxi Civic Center in Biloxi, Mississippi, from 6-9 p.m.
Hundreds of attendees will sample your dish and vote for their favorite. You have the chance to showcase your restaurant while giving back to those in need along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. This event brings in funds to help us feed thousands of Mississippi families in need.
Your business will be listed on our website and promoted through social media, radio/tv, and email marketing leading up to the event. There are also limited media spots available.
