RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The Taste of Brunswick Festival will be a platform for 25 to 30 stewmasters who will compete for the World Champion title this Sat., Oct. 14.

The annual festival is in its 21st year, and organizers expect 10,000 people to attend. Stewmasters will sell stew samples and bowls beginning at 11 a.m., and quarts of stew will be for sale beginning at 1 p.m. Visitors can expect singers, a car show, an antique tractor show, vendors and children’s activities. The family-friendly event will also have entertainment like Civil War re-enactors, stagecoach rides and a petting zoo for kids.

The Brunswick stew festival began in 1988 when the Virginia General assembly affirmed that Brunswick County, Va. was the birthplace of the stew.
