10th Annual Craig Caddis Festival & BBQ Cook-Off
Saturday May 21st is the date for our 10th Annual Craig Caddis Festival and BBQ Cook-Off in downtown Craig. This is our biggest and longest term community festival. The Craig Volunteer Fire Department is the recipient of the proceeds from this annual fundraiser.
We generally have 10 BBQ competitors but this year we may exceed that number. The more the merrier. If you want to participate in this awesome contest and fundraiser let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
10th Annual Craig Caddis Festival & BBQ Cook-Off Events this year include…
Parade @ 4pm. I stole the idea from long time Craig legend LT and applied it to the Craig Caddis Fest. I think he thought of it in the late 90’s. Now an annual event that has grown quite large. Anyone can participate. Again get in touch with Mark at the email above and he can get you a slot in this family friendly event.
BBQ Cook-Off @ 4pm-7pm. Come on down and BBQ up your famous Ribs, Chicken, or Beef item. Anyone can play. Let us know if you want to have fun, serve your BBQ items, and help support the Craig VFD. It is the primary fundraiser for our community fire department. 2oz bites are the key. They sell for $3 and that goes directly to the CVFD.
Raffle Items. The Fire Department will get a few big ticket items to raffle off. Former raffle items have included Kayaks, GoPro, Pop Up 10’x10′ tents, coolers, and more.
Silent Auction 4-7pm. In the Craig Courtyard between Joe’s Bar and the Trout Shop all day long. Items include local lodging, guide trips, drift boat rentals, T-s and hats, fishing clothing, cool items from local Great Falls and Helena businesses, gift cards, wine baskets, candy, art, and more!
