8th Annual Dutch Oven Cook-Off Coming up soon!!

The 8th annual Paradise Cowboy Dutch Oven Cook Off will be held on the second Saturday, October 14, 2017 on the grounds of the Gold Nugget Museum, beginning at 10:00 am and continuing until the food runs out!. Admission is free yet all donations are welcome as this a fund (FUN) raiser.

Join us in a day of ol' fashioned Cowboy cookin! This fun event attracts Dutch Oven cooks from near and far, serving up great food prepared the way it was in the days of the wagon trains and early settlers. These teams will be competing for Best Main Dish, Best Bread, and Best Dessert with each winner getting $100. The public can not only watch the teams as they work their craft, they can also sample the various dishes by making an $8 donation for a sampling plate. Sampling plates are limited so get yours early! Sampling begins just after the judging, which is scheduled to occur about 1:30 P.M.

In addition the day’s festivities will include a Chuck Wagon Bar B Q lunch (also $8 per plate,) a Cowboy Saloon with cold local beer from Feather River Brewery, and some great Music with Jonathan Arthur. Did I mention that we will also have a silent auction and drawings for some great gifts? Well you can count on it!

See our events page for more information on this and more good times to be had with the Gold Nugget Museums!
