Best Bloody Mary Competition

Providence's Best Bloody Mary is back for round two! Join us for the second installment of Providence's Best Bloody Mary, presented by the New England Hemophilia Association (NEHA) and Rhode Island Food Fights, on Saturday, April 13th from 11AM-2PM at the beautiful and historic Roger Williams Casino!


Enjoy a day of tasting some of the best Bloodys in Providence whipped up by local bartenders. Your ticket allows a Bloody Mary tasting from each event competitor. Sample sizes are large enough to judge but small enough to allow you to taste all the participants' entrees!


Admission is $30 and includes tokens to vote for your favorite taste and garnish and a $5 food voucher to be used toward any purchase at one of the three food trucks in attendance! At the end of the event, a trophy will be presented to the bar who has the most tokens for best taste and best garnish. Because of the nature of the event, attendees must be 21 or older. 100% of all proceeds will benefit NEHA's programs and services.

Nine bars competed for the title of Providence's Best Bloody Mary. After a hard fought battle, The Rosendale won first place with their unique pineapple-mango habanero bloody, garnished with candied bacon, celery, blue cheese stuffed olives, and habanero pepper. Best Garnish went to TROOP with a crispy duck wonton, yuzu and Asian pear relish, and micro cilantro.

More than 320 attended the event, raising over $8,000 for bleeding disorder programming and awareness through the New England Hemophilia Association. We're excited to get started with this year's event and hope to have an even better event than last year, with more competitors, a larger venue, and of course more guests as well!
