Sensational Soup-Off/ Empty Bowls

October 9, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Give back and warm your tummies and your heart with a bowl (or bowls!) of some scrumptious soup, rolls are served and beverages are available. Musical entertainment is provided all afternoon by  Madison Galloway and Jiggity James.  All of the proceeds go toward the fight against hunger and poverty in our community. This is the Signature Event of the Sensational Elora Festival and our Empty Bowls Project. On this day a number of chefs, youth amateur and professional, will face off by creating their best soup using as many local ingredients as possible. What a great way to give back on this special Day of Thanks!

We look forward to promoting inclusion and the sharing of cultures through food. We’re hoping to see soupers and soup recipes that represent as much multi-cultural cuisine as possible.

Entry to soup-off is only $20.00 for adults, $10.00 for children under 12 and $50.00 maximum for a family of two adults plus children. There will also be a dazzling display of one-of-a-kind bowls and glasses, donated by local artists and available for only $25.00.

Pick your bowl, fill it with soup and sit back with a beverage to enjoy the music!

Every dollar spent goes directly to a worthy cause.  Be generous!

Voting will take place during the event and prizes will be awarded. For more information and an application form to take part in the Soup-Off competition please visit our contest page.

$20.00 adult, $50.00 family maximum with children under 12
