Cowra will hold its inaugural camp oven cook out on June 10.

Momentum is gathering for Cowra’s inaugural Pitch Fork camp oven cook out to be held over the June long weekend.

Pitch Fork organiser Garth Collins says the event is a celebration of our wonderful outdoor Aussie lifestyle, our love of the bush, camping, wholesome family fun, cooking outside and just sitting around the campfire with good food, good people and good yarns.

Mr Collins said anyone attending can expect a fun filled weekend with entertainment the whole family will enjoy.

“We’re looking for bush cooks, entertainers and stallholders to transform the Cowra Showground into the ultimate camping experience on Saturday, June 10,” Mr Collins said.

Already on the program is camp oven cooking, demonstrations and competitions, bush poetry, bands, markets, great food, workshops and dance performances.

While there will be lots happening on the sidelines Mr Collins said organisers are primarily looking for a camp oven champion.

“We want to know your best camp-oven recipe, and if your recipe beats the rest you'll win yourself a fair degree of cooking kudos,” Mr Collins said.

“If you’re a local entertainer or someone who enjoys a sing-a-long we want to hear your talent.

“We have a few spots left on our festival program for Saturday and we want to showcase the best entertainers Central NSW has to offer,” Mr Collins said.

Stallholders also have the opportunity to take part but Mr Collins says they are looking for quality over quantity with a cap on stallholder sites. Stallholders can find out more information from
