Thursday, Jan. 17-Sunday, Jan. 20

Food lovers, pay attention! Muskogee Civic Center, 425 Boston, hosts a huge weekend of food, music and fun, all in honor of community and a great man. The 9th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Soul Food Cook-Off weekend features home-cooked excellence in some serious-yet-friendly competition to win over your heart and palate. More than $10,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded in categories of meats, breads, desserts, veggies and miscellaneous. Weekend events to look for include a premiere screening of PBS television’s Soul Food Junkies at the Roxy Theatre in downtown Muskogee, performance by R&B Yearbook, the gospel show and, of course, the cook-off itself on Saturday from noon-4 p.m. Taster kits are $10 each, but admission to the cook-off is free. Check for admission at other related events and schedules.
