What is the Cultural Cook-Off?
The Inaugural Cultural Cook-Off is an event that fosters diversity in our local community through the universal languages of food, music, culture, and dialogue. Local food vendors from various cultures compete with one another to raise money for wonderful causes with live music, cultural arts, vendors, icebreakers, games, prizes, contests, speakers, and much more! #Network4ACause
