Something's Cooking in Georgetown

It's getting closer. Everyone's coming. There's a song in the air. Beer Garden with brats. People dancing. Full skirts swirling. History everywhere. Food's sizzling. You've got to be here!

The Dutch oven has a history all its own. The early Colonist wouldn't be without one. It was on swinging on the outside of covered wagons going West. On those long cattle drives, every chuck wagon had one or two tucked away. Today, campers know just how great food tastes when cooked outdoors - in their Dutch oven.

On Saturday, September 19, Historic Georgetown Inc., is hosting their first Dutch Oven Cook-off celebrating 150 years of Mining History in Clear Creek County. The contestants will offer a Miner's Stew, Bread, and/or Dessert cooked on-site to the celebrity judges. Tastings can be bought by bystanders, too.

The Dutch oven cooking starts at 9 am. Live entertainment happens all day long. From dulcimer and country singers, square dancing and storytelling, old fire company hose carts and mining exhibits, to the exiting Awards Ceremony at 4 pm, Georgetown, Colorado is the place to be.

A short 30 minutes from Denver or Summit County, take I-70 to exit # 228 and come on downtown.

We're getting ready for you. Come join us for a great end of summer celebration.
