What is a soup cook off?

If you've never been to a soup cook off, you're missing out! Let me walk you through a typical event, as you'll experience it. You will get a spoon and a brochure at the registration table. Keep your spoon! Then, you'll enter the ballroom and there will be chef tables lining the entire room. Each chef has brought their best soup, chili, chowder, bisque or stew. Chefs and restaurants want to win, so they all bring their A-game! You get to work your way around the room, in any order, and taste all of the entries as much as you'd like. All of that soup will make you thirsty, which is why we always have endless free drinks, in many varieties, for all of our guests. We will have coffee, juice boxes, soda, water and more. You may help yourself at any time. Also, there will be a cash bar for those 21 and older.

Why Two Soup Cook Off's?

The Soup Cook Off is now in its sixth year and has become the largest event of its kind in central Pennsylvania.  Prior to 2015, the cook-offs were held the first weekend in March at the Park Inn, and benefited the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Central Pennsylvania's largest Soup Cook Off is coming to Harrisburg! After five years this event has grown and by popular demand we are holding a second Soup Cook Off this September. Many people were upset that they could not make the 5th Annual Soup Cook Off at the Park Inn in Mechanicsburg due to the bad weather that day. Below is all the details! We want to thank the Best Western Premier for helping us bring this great event to the East shore!
