More Than A Good Dish.

Posted By on Wed, Nov 26, 2008 at 11:50 AM


In Stuttgart, Duck Gumbo is more than just a delicious dish.  More, even, than a popular competition at the Wings Over The Prairie Festival.  It's a party of some extensive reknown.

Once your turkey dinner settles and the tryptophan coma wears off, consider a drive down to Stuttgart to enjoy the festivities.  The carnival and midway open at 1 p.m. on Thursday -- something to enjoy with the kids in the light chill of autumn.  But there's more -- including arts and crafts competitions, contests, and of course the World Championship Duck Calling Competition.

The big Duck Gumbo cooking contest is Saturday (corrected)... and it's about more than the food.  50 teams compete starting at 10 a.m. -- and at 3 p.m. the judging on taste begins.  But it's about more than the food.  The booths are judged on presentation, and thousands come out to enjoy the hospitality and hilarity.  Some teams work all year to create their fabulous displays.  It's certainly a sight to see.

Need more information?  Check out the Stuttgart Chamber of Commerce website for a full schedule and directions.
