Hi Chiliheads! Rest assured that we have not forgotten about the festival this year! The cook-off WILL NOT be held in conjunction with the Owasso Harvest Festival this year. There were some developments that happened in our "off-season" and because of them we have undergone some changes. We are currently looking for a non-profit to take help sponsor the event and be the beneficiary. We hope to have everything organized soon and are looking to move the date to this spring instead of the fall. If you are a member of a non-profit organization that would like to be a part of the cook-off and bring some funds into your organization, LET US KNOW! More to follow as we get details!
