Virtual Zucchini Week 2020

July 20, 2020 @ 9:00 am - July 24, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

Join us for a week of zucchini celebration for this year’s Virtual Zucchini Week! While we’re sad to not be able to host our regular Zucchini Festival onsite at Braddock Farms due to COVID-19, we’re thrilled to bring you a number of ways to join in on the zuke fun all through the week, culminating in a virtual zucchini fest on Facebook Live with Farmer Nick on Friday, July 24 from 3 – 4 pm.

Contests this year include…

  • Zucchini Home Run Derby: take your best swing with a zucchini baseball bat and send us your videos to be included in our compilation to be aired on the Friday livestream.
  • Biggest Zucchini Contest: just what it sounds like! Send in a pic of your biggest zuke on a scale to be considered. The competition stakes are high after last year’s Braddock Youth Project garden team entered a 7 pounder to take the top prize.
  • Zucchini Cook-Off: submit your favorite way (with a photo) to prepare this zesty summer squash to contribute to a virtual cook book.

Our Friday livestream will include an “Ask a Famous Zucchini” session with Farmer Nick, Braddock Farms Manager, when you can ask all your zucchini crop questions. Contests winners will receive fun prizes, including farm stand vouchers, Grow Pittsburgh merchandise, and more!

To enter any of the competitions, please tag us in a post (@growpittsburgh on all platforms) or email it to info@growpittsburgh.org by Thursday, July 23.
