If there’s one thing that the South is known for it’s good old-fashioned home style cookin’. No matter which way you slice it the biscuit has been a staple at southern mealtimes for generations and Knoxville, Tennessee is one place that knows its biscuits. This is why the International Biscuit Festival is held right here in Knoxville on Memorial Day weekend.
Whether you like gourmet biscuits made with cheddar and garlic, sweet potatoes, or you prefer a good old buttermilk biscuit topped with sausage gravy, you’re sure to find your match at the International Biscuit Festival on May 19.
Selected as the Best Food Festival in the nation by Livability.com, the International Biscuit Festival is home to an array of biscuit related activities including a Miss and Mr. Biscuit Pageant, a Biscuit Bazaar, Biscuit art and songwriting, a Biscuit Breakfast and Bake-Off and more. Now say that five times fast!
