Free Breakfast (of Champions) Wednesday June 19th

For over two decades, the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce has welcomed the best restaurants, cafes, bakeries, farms and food purveyors in the Hudson Valley to showcase their top creations at the culinary celebration known as Breakfast of Champions, where vendors in attendance provide samples of their best work to the public.  This annual festival of the gastronomic arts returns on Wednesday, June 19 from 7:30-9:30 a.m. at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center, and as always, admission is free and the event is open to the community at large. 

For entrance, simply download a complimentary admission ticket. 


Breakfast of Champions does not feature merely breakfast foods, but rather items from all across the menu, everything from cupcakes to duck confit and locally brewed beer to organically grown beef.  The event represents the public’s only chance to get to sample so many wonderful local products at one time for no cost.  Aside from the complimentary samples, exhibitors will also be handing out menus and other literature, coupons, giveaways and much more.


A full list of the vendors scheduled to exhibit as well as the sponsors that make an event like Breakfast of Champions possible can be found online. Looks who's coming: Wow!
