Welcome to the information page for Homegrown!

The Pioneer Museum of Alabama is holding the Alabama Cornbread Festival on November 18, 2017.  It is going to be such a wonderful event!


There will be an arts and crafts show, a pageant, horse-drawn wagon rides, cornbread tasting to benefit local non-profits, and much more! 


The portion that we are really excited about is the Cornbread Competition!


There will be a preliminary round with many contestants that are narrowed down to three.  Then in the final round, three contestants will have one hour to complete their homemade cornbread recipe in front of a live audience then present it to the judges.
