The Port Aransas/Mustang Island Tourism Bureau & Chamber of Commerce is thrilled to announce that tickets for the inaugural 2020 Paella Lovers United Paella Cook-off in Port Aransas, TX are now on sale on the event website: paellaloversunited.com.
The Paella Cook-off will be held March 28, 2020 from 12:00-6:00 p.m. at Robert’s Point Park in Port Aransas. Attendees will have the opportunity to watch the cook-off competitions and sample the many different types of Spanish paella. Additional local cuisine, a cash bar, and live Flamenco music and dancing will be provided.
“Paella Lovers United is excited to start our paella cook-off tradition in Port Aransas. After 17 years in Austin, TX, we are looking forward to bringing this Spanish-inspired event to the South of Texas,” said Yeraldin Yordi, Paella Lovers United Event Coordinator. “The event began in 2003 as an intimate paella contest in a private backyard with just eight competing teams. Since that time, and with the help of scores of people, the event has grown exponentially to over 30 participating teams and a sell-out crowd of nearly 1,000 guests each year who travel from all over the world to attend. Our wish is to recreate the event in Port Aransas and create a paella lovin’ community there!”
The Port Aransas/Mustang Island Tourism Bureau & Chamber of Commerce is delighted to partner with Paella Lovers United to bring this international, eco-friendly competition to the Coastal Bend. “As a national foodie destination, Port Aransas is the ideal location to hold the Paella Lovers festival,” said Jeff Hentz, President and CEO of the Port Aransas/Mustang Island Tourism Bureau & Chamber of Commerce. “This event has been a tremendous success, and we’re thrilled to be teaming up with this dynamic organization in bringing the event to Mustang Island.”
