Welcome to 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.

 

Admission

 

$10 per person

10 and under are FREE

Non-Profit Cornbread Corner

 

We want to make this a community-wide event, and this is where YOU come in! We invite your non-profit organization to make your favorite type of cornbread for visitors to sample. We’re calling it “Cornbread Corner”. Visitors will get to sample a variety of cornbread recipes from participating non-profit organizations and for a donation will get to vote for their favorite. All proceeds donated will be divided between all the participating non-profit organizations! It’s a great way for you to promote your organization, earn money for your organization and help us to make this a fantastic event!
