Tamarack Time!

October 14, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Tamarack Time! in Bigfork 2023

Tamarack Time! is making its triumphant return to downtown Bigfork this year!

Everyone’s family has that secret recipe, passed down from generation to generation. Tamarack Time! in Bigfork is the perfect occasion to flaunt your signature dish. This amateur food competition is open to the public and invites the Flathead Valley to come down and enjoy this great event and the great food! Hosted in the fall, this event takes place along Electric Avenue in Downtown Bigfork annually.

Drop off your favorite dish in one of the 13 categories by noon for judging. The tasting opens to the public at 1 pm, and your $5 ticket lets you sample all the entries. Hungry yet?

Want to get involved in Tamarack Time!? There are three fantastic ways to do it!

Chair a food category! Help make Tamarack Time! a success by ralling your friends, family, and strangers to submit a dish in that category. The day all you need to do is man the table, with a couple volunteers you recruit, to receive the entries and serve tastings to the public.

Be a judge! Cleanse your palate and sharpen your taste buds, and get ready to dive into Bigfork’s finest homemade culinary delights. Judging takes place from 12-1pm and the competition is fierce.

Enter you best dish, or dishes! Whether you’re known for a particular dish, the keeper of a closely guarded family recipe, or just a home chef with a creation you can’t share, bring it down to Tamarack Time! to see how you stack up. There are 13 food categories and you can enter in as many as your heart desires.
