Stone Soup Supper

Urban Ministries of Wake County’s 2019 Stone Soup Supper is presented by:

Each year, this premiere soup competition brings hundreds of people to McKimmon Center. Stone Soup is a folk story in which hungry strangers convince the people of a town to each share a small amount of their food in order to make a meal that everyone enjoys – with the moral being – the value of sharing.

During Stone Soup, a “Soup”-erior chef is crowned. We have a crowd favorite and a celebrity judge winner.

General admission for the event starts at 6 pm on November 14th.

NEW THIS YEAR – you don’t have to wait for “to-go” soup to become available near the end of the event if you lock it in with the add-on or ALL IN ticket. Come enjoy the event, get your soup (and pottery) and leave when you’d like!
