The 10th annual Sweet N’ Stickey in Dickey Rib Cook-off will be held at the Dickey Bar on Saturday, July 13, 2019. All proceeds will be given to Hospice of the Red River Valley in memory of loved ones who have passed away, most of which have received Hospice care in the community. “We continue to hold this event because we are so thankful for the care Hospice has and continues to provide to our loved ones, and we look forward to another successful cook-off,” Chrissy Kartes, event organizer, said.
Shortly after 5:30 p.m., ribs will be served to the public. Attendees are encouraged to give a free-will donation for a meal. The Long Branch Boys band will perform from 8 p.m.-midnight. Seating is limited, please bring a lawn chair if you plan to watch the band.
For a $40 entry fee, interested individuals can enter their tasty recipe in the rib cook-off contest for a chance to win the coveted Sweet N’ Stickey in Dickey trophy. All ribs must be cooked and ready to present for judging at 5:30 p.m., and each entrant will need to provide their own grill or smoker along with their own utensils.
Registration is required by July 10 and includes two racks of ribs and a Sweet N’ Stickey in Dickey T-shirt. Along with the entry fee, a registration form should be completed.
