Dutch Treat

Glenwood’s Dutch Oven Gathering is on for 2021


If you’re looking for something to do in the great outdoors, check out the Annual Glenwood Dutch Oven Gathering Saturday April 10 at Glenwood Community Park.

The event features teams cooking up delicious meals in Dutch ovens around the site. Watch the teams as they prepare traditional and updated dishes over campfires and charcoal fires.  

Each team will prepare a full meal – a meat dish, a side dish, a bread and a dessert. Water, lemonade, or coffee will be supplied with the meal. Each camp will have a menu on display. The cooks enjoy visits and telling people about their ways of cooking. 

Browse around and find the meal you would like most and then purchase a ticket for $10 per meal. Serving begins about 2 p.m. at each camp where the meals are being prepared. Enjoy your Dutch oven dinner at the park or take it home.

There will be a small contest for the cooking teams who want to participate. 

Activities this year include games to pass the time and vendor shopping.

Glenwood Library will have lots of books, CDs and DVDs available by donation for readers and viewers to add to their collections.

COVID guidelines will be encouraged. The organizers feel the event should be safe since it is outside in the fresh air and many folks have been vaccinated now. 

Activities will run from 10 a.m. until about 3 the community park on Catwalk Road, Route 174.

Organizer Molly Bryan said they are still looking for cooking teams and vendors to participate.
