Blue Plate Special
A family-friendly festival of all ages to enjoy! Customers will pay a tasting fee and enjoy samples of various Sweet Teas (fruit teas accepted) and vote for their favorite Sweet Tea!
1st Place Sweet Tea wins: $1,500
2nd Place Sweet Tea wins: $1,000
3rd Place Sweet Tea wins: $500 CASH!!!!!
PROCESS OF HOW THE SWEET TEA COMPETITION WILL WORK:
- You will pay the $30 health permit fee at the festival.
- Customers will pay a tasting fee and receive a ballot to sample the sweet tea from all of the competitors. When they come to sample your sweet tea, use a hole punch to punch your competitor number on their ballot (ex: if you are competitor #4, you will hole punch the #4 on the ballot). Then the customers will cast their ballot into the container of the competitor whose tea they like the best after they have sampled all of the tea.
- The numbered containers will correlate with your competitor number you will write on the bottom of the sample cups. Whichever container has the most ballots casted in it, wins!!
- All sweet teas are required to be HOMEMADE!!!! The competition will be held on Saturday AND Sunday (or until ballots are sold out).
- The recommended sample cup to use for the sweet tea samples can be purchased on Amazon, Polar Ice Disposable Plastic Glasses with Lids, 2-Ounce, Translucent, 500-Pack for $21.75. We are only selling 1,000 tickets so you will need to make 16 gallons total of tea in order to have enough. We had 6,500 people attend the festival last year and that was without the sweet tea competition.
