Quickly becoming one Texas' hottest culinary events of the year, the Third Annual Butcher's Ball returns to Rockin' Star Ranch in Brenham, Texas (8002 Fuelberg Pease Lane, Brenham, Texas 77883), on Sunday, Oct. 21 from 1-6 p.m. for a day of tastings, competitions, demonstrations, education, entertainment and more. Located between Austin and Houston, this event aims to highlight local growers and producers adhering to ethical and sustainable ranching and farming practices and those chefs and restaurants that utilize them - while raising funds for Houston-based non-profit Urban Harvest and their ongoing farmers markets that directly support these farmers and ranchers. In 2017, The Butcher's Ball redirected all monies raised from the event to go directly to farms and ranches affected by Hurricane Harvey - totaling over $25,000. The continued partnership with Urban Harvest will ensure that this event provides an ongoing way to support these businesses and more.

Throughout the day, a public competition for the "best bite" will earn the winning chef the coveted Golden Cleaver award - currently held by two-time winner Willow Villarreal of Willow's Texas BBQ. Austinites are invited to come and see the state's best chefs compete for this award, including Austin's own Julia Poplawsky.

In addition, The Butcher's Ball will include the following:
Butchery Demonstrations from two of the state's top female butchers Gina Lopez and Julia Poplawsky
Panel discussions with industry leaders featuring topics relating to governmental policies that impact both producers and consumers
Free cooking classes and workshops, including a Kids Cooking Class hosted by Monica Pope
Beer from 8th Wonder Brewery
Craft cocktails curated by Alba Huerta of Julep
Wine selection curated by sommelier Cat Nguyen
Desserts from a selection of award-winning pastry chefs
Live music on the lawn from Hard Luck Revival, White Ghost Shivers, Western Bling, DJ Mexican Blackbird and The Mason Lankford Family Band
