The inaugural Southern Cast Iron Cook-Off™ will take place Friday, November 1 through Saturday, November 2, 2019 at the Lake Charles Civic Center in Lake Charles, Louisiana. A celebration of cast iron, music, and food, the Southern Cast Iron Cook-Off™ will bring together folks from across the country for a fun-filled, family-friendly weekend.

Amateur and professional chefs are invited to preregister in their choice of four categories and prepare original dishes on-site in cast iron for judging.

An indoor expo will feature cooking demonstrations, cast iron makers, regional food favorites and goods, a local farmers’ market, and opportunities to get your hands on the newest cast iron essentials. Don’t miss a stop by our food trucks and beverage vendors!

The music line-up for Saturday will have your toes tapping all day long, especially for headliner and country music superstar Craig Morgan!

The Southern Cast Iron Cook-Off™ is the perfect opportunity to gather with thousands of food and fun lovers, just like you. See you there!
