Tickets for Chuck Wagon Meals Go On Sale - $15 each

These five-course meals are made by each wagon, fit for the trail and primed for competition. Quantities are limited and tickets sell out fast! These deliciously slow-cooked meals are what it is all about for people who come to this event from all over the Southwest. There is no presale of these tickets; they are only sold that day.

New this year! Presale Catered Wagon-Style Lunch - $20 each, plus processing
These presale tickets are for those who may just want the atmosphere of the event, without a coveted competition meal.  Or, they can complement those meals you purchased. A ticket includes a five course meal, access to a covered tent area and water. These meals are served 12:30 - 2:00 p.m.
