Additional Event Details


  3. Bring on the "Beans, Greens and Cornbread!" and you’ve got the Delta Cultural Center’s (DCC) 4th annual down home culinary cook-off! This is the big event, the one where the DCC applauds the unique tastes of the Arkansas Delta. It has been said that not even music is as distinctly characteristic of this area as the spreading of a feast of native foods before a gathering of kin, neighbors, and friends.
    Cooks come from throughout Arkansas to compete, as well as crowds of spectators to cheer them on and sample the dishes! So, mark your calendar for Saturday, June 6, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event will be held at the Hunt Education Building, 105 Missouri Street, in downtown Helena, Ark. There is no entry fee for contestants and admission is free to all. But registration is required and will be open until 3 p.m., Friday, June 5.

  4. Celebrity judges will choose winners in three categories: Best beans, leafy greens, and cornbread offerings. And, in addition to the judges’ choices, the audience will sample the dishes and select one overall audience favorite! Cooks are free to enter dishes in one or more categories.

  5. The event serves up a helping of the Delta’s rich southern cultural heritage. ‘Beans, Greens, and Cornbread’, y’all! Hope to see you there! For more information on this event contact Thomas Jacques, assist director of DCC programs, at 870.338.4350.
