RING THE DINNER BELL – PIGEON FORGE’S CHUCK WAGON COOKOFF ROLLS INTO TOWN

A weekend of family-friendly competition, entertainment, and delicious frontier food awaits during the annual Pigeon Forge Chuck Wagon Cookoff Competition.

“The Chuck Wagon Cookoff celebrates an important piece of American history and highlights a couple of things the people of Pigeon Forge know very well, delicious food and entertainment” said Pigeon Forge Executive Director of Tourism Leon Downey. “While the chuck wagon cooking never disappoints, the interactive elements of the weekend make it an event that our visitors and residents look forward to each year.”

Seven teams will circle their wagons at Clabough’s Campground in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee for a day of frontier-inspired fun. Visitors can see the cowboys cook just as the early American chuck wagons did in the 1800s, relying on simple ingredients and cooking without modern conveniences like running water and electricity.
