Pistahan's Culinary Pavilion is once again hosting its fun and popular food contests – the crowd-pleasing Adobo Cook-off, Balut-eating Contest and Magnolia Purple Freeze Challenge. Do you think you can challenge last year's champions?
Sign up to participate in the Culinary Pavilion's contests during the Pistahan Festival at Yerba Buena Gardens in San Francisco!
Contests are open to the public. Because of space limitations, each contest is open to a limited number of contestants.
Read more about these fun contests in the EXPO Magazine, the official publication of the Pistahan Parade and Festival. Photos from previous years' contests can be viewed at flickr.com/pistahan.
