3rd Annual BBQ Tempeh Challenge

  • The Boathouse 326 Riverside Dr Asheville, NC, 28801 United States (map)

It's that time of year again! Smiling Hara Tempeh is putting on another Tempeh Challenge in Asheville, and this year the theme is BBQ! They will have an array of local food trucks and chefs dishing out creative and original BBQ tempeh. 

There will be local music. There will be fun. The event will be held at The Boathouse down in the River Arts District. There will be a few picnic tables, but they do encourage you to bring picnic blankets or chairs. And games! This is a family event so please bring your little ones, too!  

25% of the event proceeds will go to Growing Warriors. The Growing Warriors Project is a program dedicated to train, assist, and equip veterans with the skills, tools, and supplies needed to grow high quality, naturally grown produce (and hemp) for their families, communities, and their country.
