September 2019 - The Captain's Run
We just can’t wait until 2020…
And that’s why we’re excited to officially announce the 2019 Captain’s Run. An event designed to keep the momentum of the World Butchers’ Challenge rolling, as we continue to grow at a speed none of us saw coming.
Shortly, the World Butchers’ Challenge will be sending out special invitations to the captains of our 16 teams, inviting them to join us in Sacramento this coming September, for their chance to witness the arena and location of the competition firsthand.
September is a pretty special time to be in Sacramento to begin with. Farm-to-Fork isn’t a passing fad or a marketing slogan in the Sacramento region – it’s the way they have always lived. The region has been an agricultural powerhouse for centuries, boasting a year-round growing season, ideal climate and a mouth-watering bounty of crops. The region’s Farm-to-Fork Celebration takes place throughout the month and highlights the region’s culinary scene with daily restaurant specials, farm dinners, street fairs and other exciting events. One standout event is the Farm-to-Fork Festival, featuring food, wine and beer vendors, along with farm displays, kids’ activities, cooking demonstrations, live music and more. The 2018 festival attracted more than 100,000 people.
In addition to being among the foodie fanfare, our Captain’s Run itinerary will see us visiting the challenge arena, a captain’s workshop, a ranch / city tour and will cummulate in a day’s captain’s event at the Farm-to-Fork festival - in front of a captive foodie audience.
More to come on this very shortly, but in the meantime we’re calling all captains - mark your calendars for 26-29th September!
