The Chandler Chuck Wagon Cook-Off is one of Chandler’s signature community events, as well as one of the largest chuck wagon cooking events in the Southwest. The 2021 event will focus on food with a back-to-basics approach with only wagon viewing and lunch meals as activities. Appropriate social distancing and COVID-19 procedures will be in place.
Festivities take place at Tumbleweed Ranch, where attendees have the chance to experience a rare, up-close look at Western history and are transported back in time with chuck wagon competitors wearing period dress, using period equipment and cooking methods as if they are on an 1880's cattle drive. This is a culinary experience unlike any other being done in the Valley. It is an homage to the Old West, outdoor cooking and the original food truck.
The Pardners of Tumbleweed Ranch, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, with the support of the City of Chandler, Chandler Museum staff and a cadre of volunteers, make this event possible.
