Hotdish Revolution 2018

Birds chirp, leaves bud, baseball starts, taxes are due… THIS is when you know it’s time for NE Minneapolis’ signature community-building event, the Hotdish Revolution!

So start your ovens! Chill your molds! And join us for the 14th Annual Hotdish Revolution at the one and only Solar Arts by Chowgirls amazing event venue.

Whose tater tots will be the crispiest? Whose Jell-O sculpture will astound and amaze? As always, we hope you’ll try your hand at entering a creative hotdish and that you’ll bring your friends to stack the vote for you.

Part fundraiser for HNIA Holland Neighborhood Improvement Association, part quintessential community-building gala for NE Minneapolis, the event is a gleeful contest for hotdish makers and Jell-O aficionados, as local “celebrity” judges decide who will reign supreme in a number of casseroles (gasp! the “C-word” is prohibited!) categories… um… we mean *hotdish* categories! After the winners are chosen, everyone gets to sample the offerings against a backdrop of music, local craft beer, and general revelry.
