Event Canceled for 2017: Please note SF Rec & Park confirmed for us via email that the 2017 Turkey Cook-Off has been canceled.
Join SF Rec and Park for their annual Turkey Cook Off from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m. at Minnie and Lovie Ward Recreation Center (650 Capitol Avenue).
It’s part Iron Chef, part Thanksgiving. The free event pits staff and kids from 11 rec centers against each other. The winners will procure bragging rights for an entire year. The teams include staff and kids from the Mission, Chinatown, Oceanview, SOMA, and Bernal Heights.
There are three contests: one for the best side dish, one for the best dessert, and one for the best turkey.
Each year, some 200 attendees from the community come for the free festivities, including sampling dinner consisting of the each team’s rendition of the quintessential Thanksgiving meal. In addition to official final judgments, there will also be a “People’s Choice Award” in which all attendees can vote.
