Mark your calendars! Treetops Resort is thrilled to host the first ever in Michigan - Big Green Egg Cooking Competition!

Grill on the Hill - EggFest 2018

Saturday, April 28th

Sponsored by Meyer Ace Hardware 

What is an Eggfest?

There are two types of people who attend Eggfests; Cooks and Tasters. Cooks bring their best recipes and techniques to cook amazing food on provided demo eggs. Tasters show up and taste the amazing food that the cooks prepare on the eggs – and are the judges!

What's the schedule of festivities?

If you have never been to an Eggfest, you are in for a Treat! Make sure you come hungry. You don't want to arrive late afternoon and miss out on some really great eats...so come early and enjoy the day. We'll have some fun Michigan breweries pouring samples, along with 2 bands performing outside. We will also offer Big Green Egg accessories for sale in a section close to the event entry area. There will be plenty of seating and tables there as well. 

  • Friday
    • 7pm - Special Early Lighting of the Grills / Security Provided
  • Saturday Events

Where is this happening?

  • The Eggfest will be at the Top of the Hill overlooking a gorgeous view with a beer tent featuring local breweries pouring samples - including Jolly Pumpkin, Blake's Cider Mill, North Peak Bewing Co., Arcadia Brewing Company, and Brewery Vivant
