The meat for the cook-off will be provided by the park but participants will not know the type of meat until it is time to cook. Cooks must supply their own secret seasonings to make their dish a standout. Teams will be given the meat Friday evening to prepare overnight. Tastings will follow on Saturday. Live music will be available for both participants and spectators to enjoy. There is limited space so teams must pre-register. Registration will open at 9 a.m. on March 2. To register or for the rules and regulations, please call the park at 540-862-8114. For spectators, entry into the event will be $10 per person. Craft artisans and food vendors will also be onsite.
