Admission to the event is only $5 for an all-you-can-taste bracelet, which allows you to sample all of the cook-off entries, while supplies last. For those who do not eat seafood or wild game, hamburgers will be available for purchase.

Proceeds from the event will be placed into the Friends of Palmetto Island State Park fund. This fund benefits the park through enhancement projects, volunteering, promoting and providing events and programs at the park for visitors and locals to enjoy.
