The Cowboys and Cobbler Throwdown is a new event coming to the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center in Duncan, Oklahoma.
Come out for the cobbler contest and stick around for live music, longhorns on the property, and a bit of cowboy poetry peppered throughout the day to keep things lively.
This tasty, fun fundraiser is open to ALL cowboys, cattle queens, and of course, bakers, youth aged 10-17 and adults 18 and older. Bakers must enter their own home-cooked cobbler. Bakers are limited to two different recipes. Dutch oven cobblers, large casserole and deep dish cobblers are all acceptable, but pies will not be accepted. There is no early entry fee and all registration forms are due by Friday, March 27th.
Non-monetary prizes to be awarded in four different categories, including a People’s Choice award, for both youth and adult divisions. The cobbler in both youth and adult divisions with the most tickets will win the People’s Choice awards!
There will be ice cream, because, as in the words of Cowboy Mike, "It's a sin to serve cobbler without ice cream!"
Entertainment will include cowboy performer Jay Snider of Cyril and emcee; flutist Duane Paul of Duncan, and Two Belles also of Duncan. A finale 2-hour concert will feature Gary S. Pratt.
A "Quickdraw Poetry Showcase" provides cowboy poets of all ages a chance to share their best or favorite poem. There will be opportunities throughout the day for cowboy poetry performances. Only one reading per cowboy poet for the day.
See below for more information.
Tastings are 5 for $5. Forms will be available on the Chisholm Trail Heritage Centers website and in their main lobby beginning March 1st. All necessary information will be on the form, including cobbler arrival deadlines, winners announced, etc.
