A dream team of Southern chefs and pitmakers will cook—some of last year’s favorites are returning, as well as some new faces.
Chris will turn Underbelly, Hay Merchant and Blacksmith into a massive street party, with the goal of raising $300,000 for Hurricane Harvey Relief.

For the last two years, Houston Chef Chris Shepherd and his friends have hosted a huge event to raise money for those living with multiple sclerosis. But just a couple months before this year’s event, Hurricane Harvey devastated Houston with severe flooding, displacing tens of thousands of residents and causing an estimated $190 billion in damages.
Chris, his team and fellow chefs—in partnership with Legacy Community Health—switched gears to support those in the culinary and beverage community affected by the hurricane.
“Right now, we need to focus on our city,” said Chris Shepherd. “Houstonians are fighters, and we are going to fight for our city. It’s going to take a lot to make Houston whole again. I want to bring the country together–whether you can attend this event or not–for my city, my hometown. We’re Houston strong!”
