A Message from Us

Hello Soup-Lovers!

     Thank you for 10 years. A decade of service to #WNY through soup!

Over that time, we have spent a countless number of sleepless nights setting up tables, cooking, delivering tickets, hanging posters, loading trucks, building stages, testing sound, writing menus and updating websites. (Not to mention the clean-up.)


     During that same time, our restaurant partners have spent even more time prepping, cooking, planning, training staff, and serving little cups of soup for the chance at a 10 inch plaque and bragging rights. That’s all. They participate almost solely out of love of serving you, the WNY community.


     While serving a quarter of a million cups of soup over the last decade, we have come to develop close relationships with our vendor restaurants, sponsors and attendees. We want to see all of them—and you—stay healthy and successful in this challenging time.


     As you probably realized by now, things are going to be a little different for everyone this winter. With the regulations and safeguards put in place to protect our friends and family around Western New York, we are unable to deliver the Soup-Fest experience you’ve loved for the last 10 years.


     So, we are going to try a little something different.


We will have more details over the coming weeks, but we wanted to announce that January of 2021 will be Buffalo Soup-Month!


     Every restaurant in WNY will be eligible for our 20 various award categories including best spicy, best chowder, best veggie, best meat, and most comforting.


     Voting will take place via social media and our Soup-Fest website. Restaurants will still be eligible for those coveted 10 inch plaques and bragging rights.


     More info to follow, but in the meantime PLEASE support your local restaurants and retailers. We WILL get out of this thing stronger as long as we support each other.


With love,


The Soup Fest Team
