This free 3-day event takes place at the Village at Mammoth, where you can check out delicious dishes from local restaurants that are vying for the title of Best Ribs, Chicken and Chili. This will be the inaugural year for the Mammoth Burger Battle – The winner of the burger battle will be sent to the National Cook off in Florida! Also enjoy concerts each night by world class musicians, a beer & wine garden, interactive experiences like line dancing lessons, and much more.
