35th Annual World's Largest Calf Fry & Cook-Off - Saturday, June 7, 2014

The Delicacy of Ranch Culture

Cuisines from cultures all around the world have their own delicacies for the adventurous traveler to sample, and the cuisine of rural and ranching communities is no different.

Vinita's calf fry festival was started in 1979 by rancher/banker Jim Shelton, veterinarian Dr. John Myers, and insurance man Larry Green. Now sponsored by the Vinita Area Chamber of Commerce, the festival's highlight is the calf fry cooking competition. Other cook-offs include beans, cobblers, salsas, and breads. Visitors interested in more than local food can partake in entertainment ranging from crafts, cowboy games, and more.
