Celebrate Texas barbecue with the locals at a number of barbecue festivals held each year across the state. In fact, one of the largest barbecue festivals is held every October in Grand Prairie. The International Bar-B-Que Cookers Association Cook-Off features more than 100 barbecue cooks who prepare nearly 600 barbecue samples. Witness the Obie-Cue Backyard BBQ Championship, Jackpot Beans, and even a cook-off for kids. Craving a taste of Texas right now?

Texas Chili Cook-Offs
Another food staple, chili, originated in the Lone Star State. Nineteenth-century Texas invented chili, first seen in San Antonio. The San Antonio Chili Stand later introduced the world to chili at the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago. Today, the Pump Jack Chili Cook-Off in Electra still honors the history of this cherished Texas dish. This annual event commemorates the discovery of oil in Electra with a CASI-sanctioned chili cook-off. Enjoy a Dutch oven dessert contest, a remote-controlled car race, and exciting performances by local artists. Want to try Texas recipes for chili in the comfort of your own kitchen?

Salsa, Spice & Everything Nice
The Tex-Mex fusion of American and Mexican culinary traditions typifies Texas flavor. There’s nothing like a bit of spice to kick a dish up a notch. No one knows this better than the organizers of the Three Rivers Salsa Festival. Held in Three Rivers every April, the event celebrates everything salsa and not just the food. Besides a salsa making competition and a salsa eating contest, the festival also features salsa music and salsa dancing. Visitors will also enjoy a bicycle race and dozens of food and arts & crafts booths.
