Did you know that the Stephens County Frontier Days Bob Drake Memorial Chuckwagon Cook-off has become a sanctioned event for the ACWA (American Chuck Wagon Association)? As Ulysses Everett McGill from O Brother, Where Art Thou? would say, “We are Bona fide!”
**People travel from miles and miles away to see what is in YOUR backyard! Come and support this event; May 6th & 7th, 2016.**
A Little History about the ACWA
In 1996 at a chuck wagon competition in Amarillo, Texas, a small group of Old West enthusiasts and wagon masters talked about an association. The mission would be to preserve the heritage of the chuck wagon and its use in the short, but significant, era of the cattle drives. In 1997, in Bryson, Texas, by-laws and articles of operation were adopted and the American Chuck Wagon Association was off and running. Today there are members in 31 states, Canada, Germany and France.
Frontier Days is coming up fast! The Breckenridge Chamber of Commerce is working hard to secure entertainment, vendors and Chuck Wagons for this year’s festivities! In 2015 we had 5 Chuck Wagons on the day of the event, but this year (2016) we already have 12 (TWELVE) wagons signed up! Big things coming, Breckenridge! Are you ready? #supportlocal
