October 2, 2019 | View PDF
You have a job to do when you go to the Harvestfest & Junkapalooza in Glendive at the Dawson County Fairgrounds October 13. Either enter the salsa contest or sample the salsas in a blind taste test and vote for your favorite.
There are three categories to enter: traditional fresh, traditional canned and any other, like corn or mango salsa. To enter the salsa contest Sunday, October 13 bring two pint jars or a quart container of salsa to the tables set up along the midway by the free stage at the Dawson County Fairgrounds by 11:45 a.m. If the second jar isn't used for samples, it will be returned.
People will get to taste the entries from noon to 3 p.m. with tortilla chips donated by Los Amigos and vote for their favorites by number in the three categories. Salsa should be labeled hot, medium or mild with name and phone number on the bottom of the jars.
Winners will be announced at 3:15 p.m. on the free stage when Kenny Slagsvold and friends are performing. Salsa winners in the three categories receive a certificate and $10 cash and first runner up $5 and of course bragging rights.
Rita and Steve Berube are chairing the salsa contest. For more information, contact them at 406-377-4403 or [email protected]. Contestants can retrieve their jars and any remaining salsa after 3 p.m.
This is just one of the activities during Glendive's Harvestfest & Junkapalooza October 13 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. as people celebrate local agriculture and the last farmers market of the season. Enjoy great vendor foods, musical entertainment and more while shopping for everything from produce and pumpkins to vintage furniture, creative arts and home décor. People are encouraged to bring apples and containers for free use of the cider press. There's photo ops for fall pictures taken by a professional photographer. Young and old enjoy the hay rides, pumpkin patch, haybale maze and corn "sandbox." Kids 10 and under are free. Adults $3.
Wagons and wheelbarrows will be available to haul your pumpkins and treasures to your vehicles.
