“Celebrating The Birthplace of The Fajita”

The Fajita cookoff has celebrated the Birthplace of the fajita in many different cities in the Valley since its inception in 1976. It all started on the square in downtown Edinburg.

The Fajita cookoff has celebrated the Birthplace of the fajita in many different cities in the Valley since its inception in 1976. It all started on the square in downtown Edinburg. The event then moved to the banks of the Rio Grande River at Chimney Park in Madero. It then moved to McAllen behind La Plaza Mall for several years. After that it was in Mission, back to Edinburg and then Sharyland Plantation. In 2006 the Fajita Cookoff became one of the major attractions of McAllen’s PalmFest Celebration for 10 years.
This year, the Cookoff is on the road again. And what better place to celebrate the birthplace of the Fajita than the Home Town of the Vaquero, Rio Grande City. The city management, the Tourism Department & the Economic Development Council have all joined together to make this the biggest family pachanga ever held in Starr County.

Thousands of people will come out to see Crazy Cooking Teams compete in 5 cooking categories in late October. Unlike all other cookoffs, all of the cooking categories of The Fajita Cookoff are truly indigenous of Deep South Texas: Pan de Campo (cowboy bread), Frijoles a la Charra (beans), Mojellas (sweetbreads), Traditional Fajita and Gourmet Fajitas. Yes, Gourmet! And you should see the presentations!!

And, oh yes, there’s a Special “Showmanship” Award for the team that has the best decorate Cooking Camp. Prize money and custom-made miniature BBQ Pit Trophies are given to the top Fajita Aficionados.

The Fajita Cookoff will also have live entertainment throughout the day, family games & activities and a kiddie carnival with dozens of mechanical rides, inflatables, bouncers & slides and arts & craft vendors. And then, after the cooking competition there will be a big concert for all to enjoy. Plenty of food & beverages will be avail-able. And the best part about the event it’s a totally free event with free parking & free admission.

If you have a product or business & want first hand exposure to thousands of people, we invite you to be a sponsor of this event. Go to www.TheFajitaCookoff.com for more information and photos.
