A Dog Bowl Ice Cream eating contest will be one of the new attractions at the Gibson Farm Market’s 7th annual Fresno State Farm Festival Saturday, July 13.
From 8 a.m.-1 p.m. the festival is free and open to public. A wine tasting and food pairing follows from 3 – 6 p.m. with a $5 charge for that event only.
This year’s festival will be the first at the Rue and Gwen Gibson Farm Market’s new facility at 5370 N. Chestnut (north of the Save Mart Center).
The event highlights the work of students, faculty and staff in the Jordan College of Agriculture Sciences and Technology. They will showcase student-produced products such as vegetables and fruits, meat, dairy, ice cream, olive oil, tree nuts and wine mostly from Fresno State’s 1,000-acre University Agriculture Laboratory (campus farm).
During the festival, guests can sample food products and meet with students and faculty to learn about the Jordan College.
The Dog Bowl Ice Cream eating contest starts at 11 a.m. and organizers hope it will become a fun, signature event for the festival and the valley.
The contest, which will be held outside the market, will pit 12 teams of up to four competitors in a battle to see who can eat 12 scoops of Fresno State ice cream — two pounds — first. The winning team receives a commemorative trophy and each team member gets a prize package of product and free ice cream coupons for a later date. [...]
