2015 Smokin' the Ozarks EggFest Springfield MO


EggFest is an event dedicated to the Big Green Egg Smoker/Grill. "Eggheads" (Big Green Egg Enthusiasts) travel from all over to participate and share in fun and festivities while experienced EGG cooks showcase their skills and talents with "The Ultimate Cooking Experience". Whether you own a Big Green Egg or just want to sample unique recipes from BBQ to pizza to baked desserts, then EggFest is the event for you!

Imagine a festival with hundreds of people sharing the love, passing out delicious food, and enjoying the party atmosphere! There will be amazing food coming off the EGGs all day, so it's a good practice to pace yourself and ask each EGG chef what makes their recipe special!

It's suggested that Tasters arrive between 10:00 AM and 11:00 AM in order to experience the "full" Big Green EggFest adventure! You'll soon learn why the Big Green Egg is often copied but never matched in culinary excellence!

Most importantly though, this is an event that directly benefits the Keystone Kops charity of Springfield, MO. All net proceeds from the 2015 "Smokin' the Ozarks" EggFest go directly to this fantastic charity.


Early-Bird "Taster Tickets" are available through September 13th. Tickets grant you access to unlimited food samples from cooks all performing special recipes on the Big Green Egg. Last year EggFest had over 45 Cooking Teams and over 150 Cooks all working diligently to perform their best recipes for the crowd! Taster Tickets are purchased individually for $20 or as a pair for at $35.

Each Early-Bird Taster Ticket also includes a freshly designed, Official 2015 Smokin' the Ozarks EggFest T-Shirt.

Children 12 and under are admitted to EggFest for FREE!

Taster Tickets after Sept. 13th are available through Sept. 25th online and in-store, but do not include an Official EggFest T-Shirt. Day of the event admission is $20 per individual and will be available at the front gate. A very limited number of additional 2015 EggFest T-Shirts will be available to purchase during the event as well.

Parking is available within the lots surrounding Outdoor Home at 3107 E. Chestnut Expy in Springfield, MO. We will have event staff present to help assist you in parking your vehicle.


For an EggFest to be successful, we need EGGcellent cooks. EggFest is the venue for EGGHeads to showcase their talents on the Big Green Egg. From 10:00am-4pm cooks will be showcasing their skills and talents by preparing their specialty recipes all day long. It's also an opportunity for everyone to sample others' food, share recipes, and "talk shop" with other Big Green Egg enthusiasts.

Back by popular demand, the 2015 EggFest will again feature an "Eggcellent Chef Award" competition! As Tasters enter the event they will be given 1 vote to cast for the cooking team that they feel produced the best results on the Big Green Egg.

This allows cooks to prepare a variety of recipes throughout the day and demonstrate the versatility of the Big Green Egg! All cooks are encouraged to participate, there are no special requirements or ingredients, and the winners will receive a distinguished prize!
