LUFKIN, TEXAS (September 11, 2014) – Cotton Patch Café is looking for Cobbler Gobbler’s with the messiest face and biggest smile as they celebrate 25 years of pride in East Texas.
This year, at the 30th annual Texas State Forest Festival presented by Brookshire Brothers, festival-goers will have the chance to show off their cobbler eating skills. The 1st Cobbler Gobbler Eating Contest sponsored by Cotton Patch Café will be a contest you won’t want to miss.
Clothing will get messy in a matter of seconds as contestants will not be allowed to use their hands. Contestants will have 10 minutes to gobble cobbler. All cobblers will be weighed before the contest and will be weighed again at the end of the 10 minute time limit.
There will be four winners: the Champion Cobbler Gobbler will be the first person to finish his/her cobbler and stand upright in less than 10 minutes; the cleanest plate winner; the sloppiest award winner will be the person with the messiest clothes, face, etc.; the junior division award winner will be someone under the age of 12 to finish his/her cobbler and stand upright in less than 10 minutes
Preliminary Events: Wednesday, September 17th at 6:30 p.m.

All cobbler eating contests will take place at the George H. Henderson, Jr. Expo Center in the Children’s Festival pavilion.
