Festival


The International Biscuit Festival is an annual festival held in Knoxville, Tennessee to celebrate the biscuit. The first festival was held in June 4–5, 2010, attracting over 5,000 attendees. The 2011 event was held Memorial Day weekend, with attendance estimated at between 15,000 to 20,000.

The event consists of a number of biscuit-related activities, special meals and entertainment. The activities include a buffet breakfast featuring a variety of biscuits created by East Tennessee restaurants and caterers, a vendor area with businesses selling biscuit-compatible foods, kitchen ware, cookbooks, and artwork, a tasting area with participating restaurants offering samples of signature biscuits, a live baking competition in multiple biscuit categories, a fine dining event presented by Blackberry Farm, and a tongue in cheek pageant with contestants demonstrating poise, fashion and talent.

In 2011, the event added a charitable component to benefit Share Our Strength and Second Harvest

Which Biscuit are we talking about?

   The breakfast biscuit, not the sweet biscuit

  • In the United States and sometimes in Canada, it is a small, soft, leavened bread, somewhat similar to a scone, though eggs and sugar are not used in the dough. Leavening is achieved through the use of baking powder and sometimes a small amount of baking soda is added as well. Biscuits are usually referred to as either"baking powder biscuits" or "buttermilk biscuits" if buttermilk is used rather than milk as a liquid. A Southern regional variation on the term, "beaten biscuit", is closer to the British variety. In Canada, the British phrasing is also commonly used as the country is part of the Commonwealth of Nations.

  • In Commonwealth English, a biscuit is a small baked product that would be called either a "cookie" or a "cracker" in the United States and sometimes a "cookie" in English-speaking Canada. Biscuits in the United Kingdom, the Isle of Man and Ireland may be savoury (savoury biscuits are often referred to as "crackers") or sweet, such as chocolate biscuits, ginger nuts, custard creams, or the Nice biscuit. Although in Commonwealth Nations, the term "cookie" may be synonymous with "biscuit", a cookie is generally a softer baked product.
