Join us for the 2nd Annual Cooking Competition!

We tried something new last year at the Top of the Hill and it’s safe to say it was a smashing success! Treetops Grill on the Hill is a Big Green Egg Cooking Competition, AKA an “Eggfest.” Cooking teams traveled from near and far to show us what the could do with these green dimpled ceramic grilling contraptions. Turns out people are literally obsessed with their Eggs – and with what we tasted from the competitors in 2018, it’s (over) easy to see why.

What is an Eggfest?

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. 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!
