Champlain Valley’s Best Bloody

October 5 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

You’re Invited To A Battle Of The Bartenders

After two extremely successful sold-out Best Bloody Mary competitions in Providence, Rhode Island, the New England Hemophilia Association (NEHA), is happy to host another competition on Saturday, October 5th from 11AM-2PM at the Champlain Valley Exposition in Essex Junction, Vermont.

Enjoy a day of tasting some of the best Bloodys in Champlain Valley whipped up by local bartenders!

Here, competing bartenders are invited to compete for free and are granted a table at the event where they can create their unique bloody mary concoctions with their own mix, spices, and garnishes. All competitors are provided with vodka from event partner Tito’s Handmade Vodka. In April of 2019, this event in Providence raised over $8,000 for the the New England Hemophilia Association!


What Your Ticket Includes

Your ticket allows a tasting from each event competitor. Sample sizes are large enough to judge but small enough to allow you to taste all the participants’ entrees! Admission is $30 and includes tokens to vote for your favorite bloody and garnish! At the end of the event, a trophy will be presented to the bar who has the most tokens for best bloody and best garnish. Because of the nature of the event, attendees must be 21 or older. 100% of all proceeds will benefit NEHA’s programs and services.
