Black Pot Cook-Off in April

April 4, 2012 | Categories: Events | Tags: , ,

Sign up for cooking at the first Old Town Clovis Black Pot Cookoff! Coming up on April 22, we are looking for cooks! This is a growing pastime for many folks across the nation. Cooks use “black pots” or Dutch Ovens to showcase entre’s, desserts, breads and side dishes. They cook off the ground, on steel or iron tables, firepits or cinder blocks with briquettes.

Applications for cooks and cooking teams are available online at or by calling the office at 559.298.5774.

We will be selling a very limited number of “passports” for tasting and those ticket holders will decide on the People’s Choice Winners! Passport tickets are only $10 and available at Hearts Delight and Bear Creek Gifts in Old Town and at Tickets are limited.

Enjoy an afternoon in Old Town listening to music, chatting with the cooks, sampling foods, and observing artisans demonstrate the skills of yesteryear! The artisans will also be selling their crafts!

In honor of National Cowboy Poetry Week we will introduce local cowboy poets . . . join in if you have a poem you’d like to share!
