Ashland City will host the 2nd Annual Cumberland Catfish Cook-off

ACPictured is last year’s winner, Valerie Kemp Dreier, CPA, who generously donated her prize money to Kiwanis.
The 2nd Annual Cumberland Catfish Cook-off will take place on Saturday, June 28th at 7 p.m. on the last night of Summerfest, Ashland City Parks and Recreation Department’s annual festival fundraiser.
The competition, which will be held at Riverbluff Park, is open to everyone, including individuals, businesses, churches, community groups and ball teams.
The entry fee is $25 with water and electricity provided.
The judging will be based on a single plate, which will consist of catfish, one side item and hushpuppies.
The following cash prize money will be awarded: $500 for first place, $300 for second place and $200 for third place!
Participants start setting up at 5 p.m. and the judging will begin at 7 p.m.
Participants should prepare enough plates for up to 8 judges – plates will be provided by sponsor as well as a commemorative t-shirt!
If you would like to sell catfish plates to the public, it will be a $55 booth fee and the $25 entry fee will be waived. Keep in mind anywhere from 2,000 to 3,000 people attend each night of Summerfest!
To enter, fill out an application and send it along with your fee money to Ashland City. We will send you a receipt along with rules & set-up information. You can also come by City Hall at 101 Court Street in Ashland City to pay in person.
