Time to Get Back in the Saddle With Lubbock’s Pancake Festival on Saturday
On Saturday, February 19th, 2022, one of Lubbock's largest and one of the tastiest fundraisers will be held at the Lubbock Civic Center.
Get your syrup and butter ready for the 70th annual Lubbock Lions Club Pancake Festival. The festival will be open Saturday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. That means you can have pancakes and sausage all day long. And of course you can't go to the Lubbock Lions Club Pancake Festival without purchasing some crispy bacon.
So, how many pancakes will people in Lubbock be consuming? We aren't really sure, but nearly 6,000 pounds of pancake batter, along with 41,000 ounces of pancake syrup are being brought in for the festival. Combine that with the 80,000 sausage links and 23,000 slices of crispy bacon and you have one giant food festival.
Tickets for the 70th Annual Lubbock Lions Club Pancake Festival are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Kids ages three and younger get in free. You can purchase tickets at the Lubbock Lions Club website or by calling: 806-763-4789.
According to a press release from the Lubbock Lions Club, which is one of the largest lions clubs in the nation, they have a goal of raising over $140,000 this year:
The only thing better than eating a LOT of pancakes is knowing that each year Lubbock Lions Club donates all of the profits raised from the Pancake Festival to over 30 charities. Our goal is to raise over $140,000 this year! Some of the organizations that benefited from the over $136,000 we raised couple of years ago include, the Adult Eyeglass Program, Boy Scout Troop 157, LISD Eyeglasses for Children, Children’s Miracle Network, Meals on Wheels, The Salvation Army, Lubbock Impact, Texas Boys and Girls Ranch Catholic Charities and the Texas Lions Camp for children with special needs (Lubbock children attend this camp for free).
Be sure to come out Saturday to the Lubbock Civic Center at 1501 Mac Davis Lane for the Lubbock Lions Club Pancake Festival.
