Artistry runs deep in Roxborough, and there’s no better stage for seeing it than at our annual Art is Life festival. Three main stages. Dozens of pop-up shops. Vendor tables lining the main artery of our neighborhood. This is a place for creative energy, fine craftsmanship, locally-sourced cuisine, and art of just about every kind.
Culinary Arts: So You Think You Can Cook?
During this intense culinary clash, contestants will battle it out to create the best cheesesteak and hoagie they can in front of a live audience. But there’s a catch! Local culinary instructors will be choosing mystery ingredients available to the competing cooks.
Two cooking contestants will be selected to compete in each of the competition sessions; a hoagie in the first session, and a cheesesteak in the second session. The four participating contestants will be selected from preregistered polls leading up to and during the event.
