Grits & Glory will take place Saturday, April 7th from 1pm to 7pm along the Riverfront Shops on Beach Street in downtown Daytona Beach. The event’s showcase is up to 20 different eateries competing for Best Grits plaques, cash and bragging rights.

Each restaurant will have grit dishes up to three different ways. Restaurants will sell their grit dishes in sample size portions for $2 - $4 each direct to the public. The festival is designed for guests to eat multiple grit dishes and participate in picking the best grit dishes.

Winning grit dishes will be chosen two ways. First a team of regional foodies and local celebrities will serve as judges and pick a Judges’ Choice Over-all Best Grit Dish winner and three runner ups. Passports that festival guests will use to navigate the event will not only list all participating eateries and their featured grit dishes but also include a Peoples’ Choice Ballot which will determine the People’s Choice Over-all Best Grit Dish and three runner-up grit dishes.
