The event will feature a Pie and Chili contest, an Iron Chef style “Battle Bacon” and a Pacific North West BBQ Association (PNWBA) sanctioned BBQ competition. After the PNWBA judges are given their food to judge there will be samples available for the public to try!! As I’m a certified PNWBA judge myself I can tell you that the food will be incredible. I’m unable to attend this amazing competition due to a prior comitment so please head down there and try some on my behalf!!
The Rodeo runs from May18th – 21st at the Cloverdale Fair Grounds. There has been an event on these grounds since 1888 which became a professionally sanctioned rodeo in 1948.
