Turns out there’s a lot more to making popcorn than just adding butter.
The Pop Your Popcorn Contest happens on Tuesday, August 29 at 5:00 pm.
Sure, you could settle for making your popcorn with basic butter. But the inspiration for this contest is to amp up the flavor adventure, whether you go in the direction of sweet, or savory, or someplace in between. In other words, it’s time to get a little crazy with your popcorn!
The first 20 qualified online entries will constitute the field of competition. Entry recipes must be provided at the time of online entry. People age 10 and older are eligible to enter. The 20 qualified entrants each receive one courtesy admission to the 2017 Oregon State Fair, along with a courtesy parking pass.
On the day of the contest—August 29—please bring your physical entry to Columbia Hall at 4:30 pm. Judging will commence at 5:00 under the auspices of Joe Brown Kettle Corn from Portland. The awards presentation will immediately follow the judging.
Entry recipes become the property of the Oregon State Fair, and may be edited, adapted, copyrighted, published and used for publicity, promotion and advertising at the discretion of the Oregon State Fair without compensation to the contestant.
