Chow Chow Food + Culture Festival

Chow Chow's mission is to celebrate and enrich the unique foodways of the Southern Appalachian region. Chow Chow Food + Culture Festival is the organization's flagship annual event, held every year on the weekend after Labor Day. In 2023 we will gather September 7-10th to eat, drink, and be merry while we explore the themes of Cultivating, Preserving, Collborating, and Innovating with a robust line-up of presenters. 

As makers, chefs, artists, farmers and business owners, our vision is an equitable and thriving regional food system, where culinary and creative enterprise are central to community identity and resilience. We welcome the collective sum of differences, life experiences, knowledge, self-expression, and talent our makers and guests bring to Chow Chow, and we look forward to celebrating together.
