Frederick Cotton Festival introduces events

By Haley Hoover -

The Frederick Chamber is gearing up for its eighth annual Cotton Festival to be held on Saturday, Nov. 7. This year’s event promises even more than before. There will be activities throughout the entire day which include the Chili Cook-Off, Cow Patty Bingo, Little Miss Cotton Boll Pageant, Cotton Gin Tours and much more.

In hopes to amp up the competition, the chamber is offering a $750 Grand Prize to the winner of the Chili Cook-Off. Chili may be of any type and can be cooked on site or at home. Second Place will take $350 and third place will take $250. There will also be trophies awarded for “People’s Choice.” Chili teams can stop by the Chamber office or register online at

Cotton Festival will also have non-food vendors selling all sorts of products and crafts. If you are interested in being a non-food vendor please contact the Chamber of Commerce at 580-335-2126 or register online at

While visitors enjoy chili and browsing, there will also be a live band from Fayetteville, Ark. The band, titled “Tyrannosaurus Chicken” is a deconstructed blues duo that has performed all over the Midwest region of the United States. T-Chicken (as their fans call them) is also currently the number one blues band on the ReverbNation charts for Fort Smith, Ark.
