 *** Thank you all – PAELLA LOVERS UNITED 2014 was a huge success! ***
*** Please check back later for our 13th annual cookoff next November ***

Welcome to the wonderful world of Paella.  Originally from Valencia, Spain, where it is traditionally eaten on Sundays, paella is now enjoyed the world over.  Paella Lovers United is an Austin based group that loves Paella and holds an annual festival each fall.   We welcome you to join in on all the fun.   Can you believe we will be celebrating 12 years of Paella Lovin’ spirit?   We welcome you to unite with our group and become an official “Paella Lover”!

Our 12th annual Spanish culinary festival is an outdoor event: (held each fall).  Event Date: Nov 8, 2014 – rain or shine.  Doors open 1:00 PM. Competition starts around 2:00 and runs until … well, when we’re done.  During that time you will have opportunity to see and taste the many paellas being made by our competing teams and also enjoy a great selection of tapas (Spanish appetizers) while listening to and watching live Flamenco music and dance.

Advanced Ticketing is required

In order to properly accommodate all those attending, advanced tickets must be purchased though the  tab. This is to assure that we have enough goodies on hand for everybody’s enjoyment.  We have taken every effort to keep costs down and still provide a quality gathering.   Each year’s surprising record turnouts have prompted us to make a few changes.  Last day to purchase tickets will be Oct 26, 2014.

NOTE:  Due to the size of this gathering and the Texas Alcohol Beverage Control (TABC), we are also forced to request BYOB.

Seating will be somewhat limited.   You are welcome to bring your own lawn chairs, folding tables and/or blankets.

We look forward to seeing you.
