The participating musicians and restaurants are:

The winning creation will be decided by attendees.
The event will also include:

- Children’s entertainment and activities
The Cook Off will run from noon until 6 pm. Tickets are $30 if purchased in advance or $35 on the day of. Anyone under 18 is $10. Proceeds will go to OHM Radio and their need for equipment to go on air by this August.
