‘Sauce Off’ Coming to Downtown Jamestown


JAMESTOWN – Jamestown Now and the Jamestown Renaissance Corporation invite you to celebrate Jamestown’s best red sauces at the first annual “Great Jamestown Sauce Off.” The event will be a family affair where patrons can taste various recipes submitted from area individuals, families, or restaurants. Please join us at the newly developed Winter Garden Plaza on North Main Street in Downtown Jamestown, June 24 from Noon-5 p.m. It’s going to be a tasty celebration of Jamestonians and their finest recipes!

Red sauces may either be meat or vegetarian and should be submitted to represent an individual, family, or restaurant. There will be two winners that day. The first prize will be determined by a panel of judges, including local food enthusiasts Peachy (from Peachy and Elaine) and Chef Todd Singleton. Each judge will sample all entries and vote for their favorite. The second prize will be a fan favorite award. Patrons of the event will cast their votes throughout the day for their favorite recipe. Each winner will receive a special award to recognize his or her superior sauce!
