Battle of The Hors D’oeuvres 2018 | Caesars Windsor

September 19, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm

That’s right, it’s time for Battle of the Hors D’oeuvres 2018 and Windsor Essex County’s top chefs from area restaurants and hospitality businesses will compete at one of Windsor’s most exciting food competitions in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Windsor Essex.

The 32nd Annual Battle of the Hors D’oeuvres, this year featuring 21 of Windsor’s finest food & beverage establishments, has been re-scheduled for Wednesday, September 19, 2018 at Caesars Windsor.

Please note this event was rescheduled from May 10th to September 19th due to a labour dispute at Caesars Windsor. The information below was for the event on May 10th and some of the information, participants, etc. may change for the new event. We will post the details as soon as they are made available.

For the last six years the lounge party format has been a great success. No longer a sit down gala, the Battle has become an after business interactive networking event. An indoor food and drink festival! This event offers an opportunity for guests to schmooze with some of Windsor’s finest food and beverage establishments, while enjoying creative cuisine, drinks, networking, and supporting youth mentoring programs in Windsor and Essex County.

This year promises to be even bigger and better with another great evening full of fun, food, drinks and fundraising.
