ICON Park Orlando Hosts The Great American Cookout Food Festival

ICON Park Orlando has announced it is hosting The Great American Cookout food festival on July 30, 2023, and here’s what you need to know.

The Great American Cookout will feature chef-inspired, gourmet versions of seasonal favorites, sampling flights of wine, spirits and craft beers, live musical entertainment – and your own magnificent, 400-foot view from atop The Wheel.

Eleven of ICON Park‘s restaurants will be participating, serving up dishes like:

  • Ole Red Orlando‘s Austin-smoked brisket sliders with chorizo hot link, vinegar slaw, onion straws and white bar-b-que sauce, all served on a hearty potato bun.
  • Brother Jimmy’s Low-Country Crawfish Boil featuring a seafood mix of crawfish, mussels and shrimp with corn, potatoes and sausage in a Louisiana-style Cajun spice, served with a garlic butter dipping sauce.
  • Sugar Factory‘s homemade and slow-baked macaroni and cheese that’s panko crusted, deep fried and served with a marinara dipping sauce.
  • Uncle Julio’s Tableside Guacamole with fresh Haas avocados, tomatoes, onions, cilantro and jalapeños handmade in a traditional molcajete and served with fresh corn tortilla chips.
