Food vendors, Western artists, and merchandise vendors are invited to participate in the City’s sixth annual Chandler Chuck Wagon Cook-off, which will be held at Tumbleweed Ranch on Saturday, Nov. 7, 2015. This family-friendly culinary event features competitors working from authentic chuck wagons as they cook in the style of 1880s cattle drives. The Cook-off is produced by the Chandler Museum and its support organization, Pardners of Tumbleweed Ranch.

Vendor applications are available online at www.chandleraz.gov/chuckwagon or by calling 480-782-2751. Preference will be given to vendors who specialize in cooking, local foods, Western art, and other western or history-related items. The deadline to submit a vendor application is 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 25.

The Chandler Chuck Wagon Cook-Off has been hailed as one of the best chuck wagon cook-offs by American Cowboy Magazine. The costumes, equipment, music, tastes and smells at this event transport guests back in time to show a rare, up-close look at the Old West lifestyle. Using historic cooking methods, the authentic 1880s chuck wagon teams from around the west prepare five course meals, and share the history of food and life on cattle drives. Judges decide winners in meal course categories as well as most authentic wagon and best overall meal. A limited number of chuck wagon lunches are available for purchase on Saturday. Vendors will provide additional food and beverage options.

The event will feature stage entertainment, historical and food demonstrations, and wagon rides to the nearby Arizona Railway Museum.


The Chandler Chuck Wagon Cook-off at Tumbleweed Ranch is held within Tumbleweed Park, which is on the southwest corner of McQueen and Germann roads. The 2015 Cook-off is presented by the Pardners of Tumbleweed Ranch, Chandler Museum, Biscuitflats Chuck Wagon and other sponsors.

A Special Election will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 25, asking Chandler voters to decide on an amendment to the City Charter. Proposition 484 would amend the Charter to formalize Chandler’s cycle of August and November elections in even-numbered years and January commencement dates for the offices of Mayor and Councilmember. This has been Chandler’s election schedule since 2008 and will conform to recent changes to state law.

Voters are advised to allow sufficient time to mail their ballot in as all ballots must be received no later than 7 p.m. on Election Day, Aug. 25.

Tickets for Chandler’s 2nd Annual BMX Bike Event go on sale Saturday, Aug. 1. The heart-pumping event is for bike riders and enthusiasts ages 12 to 18 and will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 12, at Chandler’s Bike Park located in Espee Park, 450 E. Knox Road.

The event will feature demonstrations and clinics, plus entertainment, bike vendors and raffles for prizes. Admission is $3 for Chandler residents and $5 for non-residents. Tickets will be available for purchase at the Chandler Community Center or online by visiting chandleraz.gov/registration. Available tickets also will be sold at the event.

Chandler’s 25,000-square-foot bike park opened in 2007 and was the first public bike-only park built by an Arizona municipality. A community focus group of local riders of all ages and ability levels was formed to provide input into the facility’s design, which includes features with names in the BMX jargon like jump box, double roller, mole hill, hubba ledge, and sub rail.
One of the most popular features for thrill seekers is a six-foot-tall wall that combines with a five-foot wall extension to create a vertical surface that is a foot taller than a basketball hoop.
