Snow Day(s) 2021
Mon, Jan 11 8:00 AM – Sun, Jan 31 10:00 PM EST
This year, like most things, the 13th annual Snow Day will be a bit different, while keeping the spirit of the event alive. This event will take place over the course of 3 weeks, with soup pick-ups, an online silent auction, and an art scavenger hunt! Hence, Snow Day(s)! SOUP OFF! Six local restaurants will be competing to create the best soup in Knoxville, using at least one local ingredient. Ticket purchases will allow each participant to pick up one 8oz. cup of soup from all restaurants, during the restaurant's designated soup week. Participants will be emailed detailed ordering instructions. Participants will be given a link at the end of the final week to vote on their favorite soup. Please note that all sales are final. In these times of uncertainty, please know that your contribution will help Beardsley Farm make Knoxville a healthier place.
