The Moore Community Improvement Club will play host to its third annual Summer Fest on Saturday, July 15.
The event, billed as a celebration of community, food, music, and fun will be held at the Moore Community Center beginning at 11 a.m.
“Pitmasters and barbecue enthusiasts are gathering for another exciting competition in Moore,” MCIC representative Shelly Delgado said. “Showcase your skills and compete in our sizzling Barbecue Cookout Contest.
“Pit your flavors, techniques, and secret recipes against other talented teams for a chance to claim the title of Pit Master. The overall winning team will not only earn the prestigious honor but also take home a grand prize worth 30 percent of the overall entry fees.”
Sign up for the contest has been extended to Friday, July 14 and spaces are limited. Cookoff entry fees are $150 per team.
The event will also offer the opportunity to purchase unique treasures and support local businesses at the pop-up marketplace.
“Whether you’re looking for handmade crafts, jewelry, or artwork, our talented vendors have something for everyone,” Delgado said. “If you are interested in showcasing your products and services, there are still spaces available. You can secure a spot for just $25. Don’t miss out on this excellent opportunity to engage with the community and expand your customer base.”
Sign-up is also underway for the cornhole tournament. Entry fees are $20 per player and awards and a cash prize are offered to the first place team.
Car enthusiasts will also have the opportunity to view a display of classic and custom vehicles at the Summer Fest Show and Shine. Those in attendance will have the chance to vote for a people’s choice winner.
