Burrito Bash Revival  

October 3  

Santa Cruz County 

Fairgrounds 

Image The Burrito Bash is back. We are searching for Central Coast restaurants with the best burritos to participate in the Burrito Bash at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds on October 3, 2015. We have a burrito jury to select the contestants, as too many restaurants surely will want to compete.

Burritos are the featured meal at the Burrito Bash. There will only be a limited number of preselected burrito booths from our region’s best restaurants. This year they will receive all of the proceeds from food sales during the event. We anticipate over 5,000 attendees. The last time it was held at the Fairgrounds in the 1990s over 20,000 people attended. Additional attendance will be generated by the Ocean Speedway, which will run on Friday prior to the event and the night following.

Best Burrito winner, and runners up, will receive an award to display in their restaurant, as well as accolades in all post event publication for theBurrito Bash, and local media coverage. Restaurants should end in an application with a $100 deposit (refunded if not selected). If a restaurant is selected for its competition quality burritos, the balance is due by August 1st.

The Fairgrounds offer a wonderful family friendly venue for the Burrito Bash. There will be music and activities. Of course, the highlight of the day will be judging of the Best Burrito, as well as a jalapeño eating contest. The Burrito Bash is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Freedom and the Pájaro Valley Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture. All proceeds will benefit local civic and charitable activities.

The Rotary Club of Freedom is a group of local community leaders, business owners, and professionals who meet weekly for fellowship. We are a part of Rotary International, a world wide service organization whose mission is to provide humanitarian service and build goodwill and peace.

For years, Rotary’s commitment to Service Above Self has been channeled through five Avenues of Service, which form the foundation of club activity. Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the smooth functioning of Rotary clubs. Vocational Service involves club members serving others through their professions and aspiring to high ethical standards. Rotarians, as business leaders, share skills and expertise through their vocations, and they inspire others in the process. Community Service is the opportunity Rotary clubs have to implement club projects and activities that improve life in the local community. International Service encompasses efforts to expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the world and to promote world understanding and peace. It includes everything from contributing to PolioPlus to helping Rotary Youth Exchange students adjust to their host countries. Youth Service recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults involved in leadership development activities, community and international service projects, and exchange programs that enrich and foster world peace and cultural understanding.
