Take a trip back in time to the cattle drive era as chuck wagons from across the southwest vie for Cookoff Champion titles. The cook-off participants will be evaluated for upholding exceptional flavor of the prepared food and the authenticity of their chuckwagon. This evaluation also includes equipment and campsites customary to the cattle drive era. Food division categories include meat, bean, potato, bread and a fruit dessert. Winners and awards are traditionally announced at 3:00 pm on Saturday. Please see the 2022 Event Calendar when it is posted at a later date for confirmed Awards Ceremony time.
Visitors of the Western Heritage Classic may enjoy a full rounded meal that is made in an original fashion off the back of an old chuckwagon. They must purchase a meal ticket. This event does take place within the grounds at the WHC so a grounds pass is required as well.
Ticket information and the times that this meal will be served will be posted at a later date.
