Taste Test At The Chili And Gumbo Cookoff

Your teeth are sure to be shown off while you smile with glee next weekend at the sight of so many glorious chili and gumbo entries at the Chili and Gumbo Cookoff. So, whether you’re entering the competition or just headed over to enjoy some delicious dishes, you’ll want to make sure your pearly whites are camera-ready by taking a trip to Cleveland Family Dentistry for your six-month checkup and cleaning!


When and Where Is the Chili and Gumbo Cookoff?

The TVFD (Tarkington Volunteer Fire Department) Chili and Gumbo Cookoff is being held Saturday, February 8th, 2020, at the American Legion, located at 25774 Highway 321, Cleveland, Texas 77327. Cooking, which must be done on-site, begins at 8 AM. Chili must be ready by 1 PM and gumbo must be ready by 4 PM, so that tells you when the rest of us need to get there! Awards will be given out at 5 PM, so this is an event that you can really make a day out of.

What Can I Expect from the Cookoff?

The cookoff will include all types of chili and gumbo, with a couple of exceptions: there are absolutely no beans allowed in the chili, and there is no seafood allowed in the gumbo! If you want to enter the competition, the price per entry is $30 for chili only or $50 for both chili and gumbo, and you will sign up when you arrive. There will be a cover charge for patrons of the event, but then you’ll be able to sample as much chili and gumbo as you want, and there will also be a silent auction!
