It is time to start thinking about the Lentil Festival again. We are only a few months away from the August 20th kick-off to the 22nd Annual National Lentil Festival so here is a little bit about what we have been up to at lentil central.
Thursday, May 28th at ourAnnual Poster Unveiling and Wine Tasting David Hoyt, the artist, presented our beatiful poster to a full crowd at the BellTower Event Venue. This years poster features many elements of the Palouse countryside highlighting lentils in the foreground. For more information about the artist and to purchase the poster visit our website at: http://www.lentilfest.com/. This year we also have commemorative postcards, notecards, and t-shirts. Visit the Pullman Chamber or our website www.lentilfest.com/shop to view these new items.
Let's talk about the famous Lentil Cook-off. It is time to submit your entries to this year's cook-off. Last year we had submissions from 38 states and our goal for this year is all 50! Submit your recipe to be entered into the contest and to make it into our 2010 Lentil Festival Cookbook. To submit your delicious lentil-recipe visit: www.lentilfest.com/join-us/contest-applications/. Submissions are due July 2nd.
Registration is now open for all other events as well. If you want to get your blood pumping this August, be sure to register for the Tase T. Lentil 5k run, the 100K Tour de Lentil Bike Ride, or one of the other events.
Now the Lentil Festival is quite a large event, and we are always in need of volunteers. If you are interested in helping with this years festival please call the Pullman Chamber: 509.334.3565 or visit our website to sign-up.
