National Jelly Bean Day falls on April 22 every year. We are celebrating this delicious confectionery holiday with a potluck dinner AND a fun jelly bean tasting challenge!

Everyone at the event will be invited to compete, as teams. The event organizers will provide unlabelled jelly beans that competitors will need to identify. A list of all possible flavors will be provided. But there are dozens of flavors of jelly beans, so this will be a real challenge!

What to Bring: Guests may bring any type of food. Enough to feed about 8 to 10 people. Bring a main dish, salad, side dish, etc. Hosts will provide drinks, plates, utensils, etc. Please do not bring a package of jelly beans. Hosts will provide jelly beans. But: If you want to COOK or BAKE a dish that uses jelly beans or pays homage to jelly beans in some way, that would be very appropriate! Such dishes could be sweet OR savory (main dishes, side dishes, or desserts).

RSVP required in order to attend: To RSVP, use your standard RSVP buttons, or use the form at the top of this page, or email: [or] text: 480-269-5823
