The family-friendly event celebrates the delicious results of cooking on the Big Green Egg while benefitting two local charities–the Fisher House of the Emerald Coast and Food for Thought. We can’t wait to welcome back returning winners as well as new cook teams that will be smoking, grilling and baking their favorite dishes on the Big Green Egg to earn votes for their delicious bites.

We’re excited for the evolution of Eggs on the Beach. After canceling the 2020 event, we’re looking forward to coming back better than ever.

The cooking competition will be enhanced by kid’s activities, live music, and drawings for a chance to win a Mini-Max Big Green Egg and more.
