New Year...New Location... Still #1

The City of Imperial is excited to host the 6th Annual Tri Tip Cook Off on February 25, 2017 in Downtown Imperial. The event is set to take place from 5pm to 9pm at the intersection of Barioni Blvd. and Imperial Avenue.  When asked about the change in location Community Services Director Ember Haller stated “We have outgrown the park. The City looks forward to the new venue for this event and the opportunities that come with it.” The Tri Tip Cook Off draws an average attendance of 6 to 7,000 attendees. “We base that count on the amount of tasting tickets we sale each year,” said Haller.

This year eighteen (18) teams will compete for the Title of Tri Tip Champion; four of which are from out of town. Each team has the potential to win up to $5700 in cash prize through various categories.
