We are excited for the return of the Summer of Chow Chow in 2022! With three weekends of culinary events, June 23-26, August 4-7, September 8-11, you will have the opportunity to gather with us around the table all summer long. Our schedule of 2022 programming will include delicious, immersive, meaningful, and educational events that celebrate and enrich the unique foodways of Southern Appalachia, while fostering dialogue about issues that impact our community including racial justice, climate change, and food justice. Flights & bites tastings events, five course dinners, hands-on classes, movie nights and more!

By engaging nationally and locally recognized chefs to multi-generational farmers and millers, bakers, artists, and brewers, Chow Chow shines a light on the creative spirit of the region that makes the Blue Ridge Mountains a delicious place to taste, to see, to explore and to experience through immersive and educational culinary experiences. In Summer 2022, we will bring together culinary creators, makers and thought leaders for creative celebrations and meaningful experiences that broaden our understanding of one another. Chow Chow’s vision is an equitable and thriving regional food system, where culinary and creative enterprise are central to community identity and resilience. We welcome the collective sum of differences, life experiences, knowledge, self-expression, and talent our makers and guests bring to Chow Chow.

Stay tuned for details!
