Tickets are on sale now for 8th Annual Eggs onthe Beach Big Green Egg cooking competition returning to Seascape Resort in Mi ramar Beach on Oct. 15, 2022. Presented by Bay Breeze Patio, the garden-party-style 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.


The 2022 Eggs on the Beach Festival will be held on the deck overlooking the pond at the Seascape Towne Centre. With the Seascape outdoor tiki bar as the centerpiece and flat screen TVs airing the top college football games, tasters are invited to walk the perimeter sampling delectable bites from a variety of cook teams competing for votes. Live music b Dan Collins and Becca of Black Eyed Blonde, a Knob Creek tasting area, seasonal beer samples from Abita Beer and Grayton Beach Beer Company, and chance to win a mini-Max Big Green Egg.


Taster tickets provide access to the event as well as unlimited bites and five tickets to vote for the “People’s Choice” winner. From backyard grillers to local restaurants to non-profit organizations, cook teams present a wide variety of dishes, ranging from meats and seafood to veggies and desserts, all cooked on the Big Green Egg.  Cook teams will be competing in a variety of categories, aiming to impress both judges and tasters. Five honorary judges-Chef John O’Neil of Dude Food Fire, Private Chef Kali Davis, Mike McIntosh of Seagar’s Prime Steakhouse, Chef Al Massa of Brotula’s Seafood House and Forbes Food Writer Abigail Abesamis Demarest- will be in attendance sampling bites to present the coveted Judge’s Award Trophies. Tasters vote for their top 5 bites to determine the “People’s Choice” winners, which gives bragging rights and a brand new Big Green Egg. 

Non-profit cook teams will be competing for a donation toward their cause. Last year, four local non-profit cook teams, including Healing Paws for Warriors, South Walton Academy, Sinfonia Gulf Coast and Boys & Girls Club of the Emerald Coast, earned the most taster votes and cash toward their cause.


Proceeds from Eggs on the Beach benefit The Fisher House of the Emerald Coast, which provides a home away from home for military families during medical treatment, and Food for Thought, which aims to fight childhood hunger and food insecurity among students in Walton and Okaloosa Counties.  Eggs on the Beach has donated more than $205,500 to local non-profits since its inception in 2013.
