Taste of The Race with Chef Emeril Lagasse
Taste of the Race with Chef Emeril Lagasse marks the official start of the three-day race weekend celebration. The annual culinary event takes place on Friday, February 28 at the Seaside® Lyceum, from 7:00 to 9:00 PM, with a VIP reception from 6:00 to 7:00 PM. This vibrant event is not just for race participants, everyone is invited to celebrate, enjoy amazing food and live music and kick off another great Seaside® race weekend!
Chef Emeril Lagasse is live and in-person for the event, and guests enjoy cuisine from Emeril’s restaurants, along with some of the Gulf Coast’s top chefs and restaurants such as Great Southern Cafe and The Bay. Fine wine, craft spirits and local brews from the Grayton Beer Company will pair perfectly with the chefs’ preparations. While Seaside® is widely known for its perfectly pastel houses, unmistakable beaches and white picket fences, the local culinary scene is no secret to foodies from far and wide. There’s no better way to celebrate all things Seaside® and start race weekend off right. The outdoor festivities are held rain or shine in a heated tent where guests can also get the first peak and beginning bidding on items at the highly-anticipated silent auction benefiting the Seaside® School. Bidding will take place throughout the weekend at all events.

(INSIDER TIP: Race registration packet pickup is also available during the event for ticketed guests only.)

With the town of Seaside® as the host, it’s no wonder why runners, beach lovers and foodies have this weekend circled on their calendars year after year.
