6th Annual Surgeons vs Chefs Pumpkin Carve Off


The 6th Annual Brookwood Surgeons vs Chefs Pumpkin Carve Off is back and at the Market at Pepper Place on Saturday, October 29th!

Brookwood Baptist Health has partnered with the Market at Pepper Place to present the 6th annual pumpkin carving contest. This festive event shows off the best of what Birmingham is known for – doctors and chefs! Top orthopedic surgeons are pitted against top chefs to win the live carving contest. Pumpkins will be judged on precision, skill and creativity. Possibly the best part, it is FREE and open to the public.

This event is family friendly, and children are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes and cheer for their favorite participant. In addition to the main event, there will be a balloon artist, face painting, mini pumpkin decorating, and trick-or-treating!


The competing Brookwood Baptist Health orthopedic surgeons include Ryan Cordry, DO, Lloyd Johnson, MD, and Robert Wolf, MD.

The competing local chefs are Franklin Biggs of Sur la Table & East Lake Community Kitchen, Nick Hartmann of Ice by Design & Alabama Power, and Chris Hastings of Hot & Hot Fish Club & Ovenbird.

Saturday, October 29th @ 10AM (rain or shine)
