Porktoberfest at Memphis Botanic Garden

Posted By on Mon, Oct 26, 2015 at 4:37 PM

A new event took place at the Memphis Botanic Garden this year, and it was all about the best pork and brews! Porktoberfest is the joining together of Oktoberfest (a celebration of beer) and a celebration of food that Memphis is well known for… pork!! Gates opened at 11 am and the event went till 6 pm.

Here’s a list of some of the Mid-South’s favorite restaurants that were on-site. Every sample had some type of pork dish.

1. Tart - Pork Rillette with Mango Salsa on Crustinis
2. BGR The Burger Joint - Onion Bacon Jam Sliders and Bacon Cheese Sliders
3. Ridgeway Country Club - Wild Boar Bolognese
4. Corky’s - BBQ Pork Nachos
5. Jim’s Place – Souflima
6. The Boiling Point – Chicken Sausage Gumbo & Seafood Gumbo
7. PIG OUT – Smoked Pork Lasagna
8. P.F. Chang’s – Jicama Pork Tacos
9. Fairbanks Steakhouse in Hollywood Casino – Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Herb Polenta
10. Double J Smokehouse – BBQ Egg Rolls & Pulled Pork Sliders
11. Ty & Maddy’s – Maple Bacon Popcorn
12. Miss Polly’s - BBQ Spaghetti
13. Agave Maria – Pork Carnitas Tostada
14. Fuel Café – Sweet Potato Bacon Phyllo Cup
15. The Brass Door - Bavarian Style Bacon and Cabbage with Pulled Pork McFadden Style

There was also a huge beer tent, bars, football games on a big screen, live music, and yard games. People brought their lawn chairs and blankets and just hung out! It was $10 to attend and food-wise that gave you access to two samples. For just $10 more, you got a card that gave you access to five more samples! It was the perfect way to have a relaxing Saturday.
