¡Bienvenidos! Paella Lovers United 18th Annual 2021 Cookoff!

We are a go for November 13, 2021!!

Paella Lovers United is proud to announce that our 18th annual, Paella Lovers United is a go! Unfortunately, due to the pandemic and other related factors, we have been forced to make a couple of changes for this year’s event. One, This year’s event will be much smaller than the previous few years and will be at a temporary new location in North Austin known as “The Water Tank” – a local cool hangout spot (7309 McNeil Drive, Austin, TX, 78729). Two, Sorry – NO BYOB (Bring Your Own Booze) this year. TABC rules and regulations won’t allow outside alcoholic beverages. But not to worry, The Water Tank will have full bar with Beer, Wine and Well Drinks available.

General Information

Paella Lovers United Logo

All attendees are invited to watch the cook-off competition up close and are encouraged to wander among the competing teams of paellas in one of two categories: “Traditional” or in full Austin spirit “Keep Paella Weird”. After judging of each heat, we open all of the cook-off paellas to the public for tasting. By nature of the size of the festival, not every attendee will have the opportunity to taste every competition paella, but watching the judging and waiting with much anticipation to try the results of the competition is a favorite draw for many. But not to worry, there will be plenty of included event sponsored paellas also available.

Paella Lovers United is a GREEN Event
