Forty of Texas' top chefs, butchers, and culinary leaders will be featured through competitions, demonstrations, and discussions focusing on sustainable farming & ranching practices; chefs from Austin's own Salt & Time and Uchiko will participate.

The annual meat-focused food and drink event aims to highlight local ranchers adhering to ethical and sustainable ranching practices while raising money for two nonprofit beneficiaries, Urban Harvest and Foodways Texas. Partnering with these two organizations and also welcoming the organization Piggy Bank for 2017, in its second iteration the event will welcome over 40 leaders in all aspects of the culinary industry. Guests will eat, drink, dance and learn through a lineup of programming including:

  • The Golden Cleaver showdown
  • A live music series headlined by Texas legend Dale Watson, with support from White Ghost Shivers, Will Van Horn Trio and Vinyl Ranch
  • Butchering from Texas' award-winning butchers
  • Panel discussions focusing on issues facing the food industry featuring an array of culinary leaders
  • Cocktails and spirits curated by Julep's Alba Huerta
  • An early morning Boucherie v. Matanza competition hosted by Felix Florez of Black Hill Ranch
  • All spread amongst Rockin' Star Ranch's luxurious ballroom, pool, arena and fields
