Cowboys and Cobblers Throwdown is a new event coming to the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center in Duncan. It will be Saturday, April 4, 2020. This tasty, fun fundraiser is open to ALL cowboys, cattle queens, and of course, bakers, youth ages 10-17 and adults, 18 and older.
Bakers must enter their own home-cooked cobbler. Bakers are limited to two different recipes. Dutch oven cobblers, large casserole, and deep-dish cobblers are all acceptable, but pies will not be accepted. There is no entry fee.
Registration forms due by Friday, March 27. Late registrations will be accepted with a fee of $20, deadline April 2.
Non-monetary prizes to be awarded in four different categories, including a People’s Choice award, for both youth and adult divisions. The cobbler in both youth and adult divisions with the most tickets will win the People’s Choice awards.
Tickets for tasting will be sold for a minimum of $5 for five samples and $1 for each additional sample to taste. There will also be ice cream, because, as in the words of Cowboy Mike, “It’s a sin to serve cobbler without ice cream!”
Entertainment throughout the day will include cowboy performer Jay Snider of Cyril, flutist Duane Paul of Duncan, and Two Belles also of Duncan. A finale 2-hour concert will feature Gary S. Pratt.
A “Quickdraw Poetry Showcase” provides cowboy poets of all ages a chance to share their best or favorite poems. There will be opportunities throughout the day for cowboy poetry performances. Only one reading per cowboy poet for the day.

Forms will be available on our website and in our main lobby beginning March 1st. Remember, no entry fee if you submit your registration form by March 27! All necessary information will be on the form (cobbler arrival deadlines, winners announced, etc..) It all happens on April 4.
