Hosting a Cook-Off

The first step is to get in touch with the:

It is strongly recommended that you piggyback your Country Roads Cook-Off™ with an annual community festival or with a venue like a farmer’s market, rather than planning it as a stand-alone event. This is a win-win situation–participants and community members will already expect the festival to happen at a certain time, and you can share the promotional costs and effort. A Country Roads Cook-Off™ can also help to rejuvenate a local festival looking for new ways to attract visitors.
