Experience a rare, up-close look at Western history at this free, family friendly culinary event. Using historic cooking methods, authentic 1880s chuck wagons from around the Southwest compete to cook up the best meals fit for the trail. Wagon teams win prizes in various food categories, and the public can purchase these unique chuck wagon meals. Join us Friday evening for a fun Campfire Glow with cowboy storytelling, singing and s’mores. On Saturday, enjoy the western ambience with performances by internationally acclaimed musicians Pioneer Pepper & the Sunset Pioneers, gun-fight reenactments, historic demonstrations and hands-on activities, wagon rides to the Arizona Railway Museum, and more. Sunday includes chuck wagon breakfast, a youth cook-off, and cooking demonstrations by radio/TV personality and author Jan D’Atri. Hosted by the Chandler Museum and Pardners of Tumbleweed Ranch.
