Cliff Payne from Cousin's in Fort Worth and Russ Garrett from Coach’s in Oklahoma City, the winners of a blind judged contest, will cook up their winning recipes for the Texas Oklahoma Red River Barbecue Shootout Celebration at Main Street Garden.  The winning pitmaster will be determined by a People’s Choice vote. This will also be a “blind” contest, with attendees purchasing a Shootout Rib Plate with “Ribs A and B” identified only and for which they will place a vote. All proceeds for food sales will benefit Kidd’s Kids, which works with chronically ill children and their families. The winner will receive a $1,000 prize.

Bands from both Texas and Oklahoma will perform free music all evening long. Attendees are invited to bring their lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy the music on the lawn.
