Pancake Jubilee


Yum! Pancakes!

DTOC Pancake JubileeThe Downtown Optimist Club depends upon one primary fundraiser each year to pay for all the programs we support in the Meridian area. That fundraiser is our Annual Pancake Jubilee. Each year on one single day from 6:30am to around 7:00pm, we feed around 3,500 people all-you-can-eat pancakes with all the fixing’s including sausage, syrup, milk, soda and coffee. During that day we will cook more than 12,000 pancakes and 6,500 patties of sausage. Gallons of butter and syrup will be poured and thousands of cartons of milk and cans of Coco-Cola will wash it all down.

The DTOC Pancake Jubilee has been a favorite of Meridian and Lauderdale County residents for over 65 years and is one of the most anticipated events held in our fair city each year. Parents who have benefited from the resources generated by this unique event are now adults who bring their children and grandchildren each year to enjoy a grand time of food and fellowship with their neighbors. We like to say that Pancake Jubilee is “Meridian’s Front Porch” where friends can gather, eat some great food, support a great cause, relax and enjoy themselves all at the same time.
