POSTPONED! – This event has been postponed and will be rescheduled at a future date.
Do your family and friends say you make the best cobbler? Our new event “Cowboys and Cobbler Throwdown” is just the challenge you need!
Registration forms are available now, due by March 27. The event happens Saturday, April 4, right here at the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center in Duncan, Oklahoma. There’s going to be live music, cobbler judging, longhorns on the property and many more things to enjoy.
There will be two divisions for youth 10-17, and adults 18 and over. Non-monetary *but really cool prizes will be given to the best four in each division. That includes a People’s Choice where the winners are determined by the number of sold tickets they receive at the event. (See below for the official schedule).
Activities planned for this afternoon event (outside weather permitting) includes the opening of Native American artist Brent Learned’s exhibit, Looking Through Indian Eyes. Brent will be here to visit with guests and share some interesting information about his art and background. He actually assisted on the installation of the Chihuly sculpture at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. In the summer of 2019, PBS News Hour did a documentary on him. He has a fascinating history as an artist and uses his talents to tell the story of his heritage. A native Oklahoman, he is a member of the Cheyenne-Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma.
Also thanks to our sponsors, Kochendorfer Brewing Co., and Duncan Convention and Visitors Bureau. The 402 Food Grill food truck, and Kochendorfer Brewing will both be on site here during the event.
