10,000 pounds of beef is a lot of cow!

That is what’s on offer this year at the 56th Annual Fireman’s Ox Roast in Shiloh, an event that will look quite a bit like it has in years past — and which will taste just as good!

A full lineup of food will be on hand, including sales of beef, baked beans, potato salad, hot dogs, cake, and pie — and other food vendors will be on hand as well.

The fun will take place on Friday, July 29 and Saturday, July 30. Bulk sales of meat, baked beans, and potato salad will take place at the fire station on Delaware Street. Food will be served from 11 AM to 9 PM each day.

Events will include:

  • Garden Tractor Pull on Friday at 6:30 PM
  • Pedal Tractor Pull on Saturday at 11 AM for ages 3-8
  • Fireworks Friday at dark
  • Live music both nights, featuring Cullinaw Rednecks from 8 to 11 PM on Friday; Kickin’ Grass from 3 to 5 PM on Saturday; and TARP from 8 to 11 PM on Saturday (all shows are free admission)
  • Parade on Friday at 7 PM

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Fireman’s Association. In part years, proceeds have brought in as much as $50,000 to $60,000.

For more information, contact Jeff Burrer (419-545-0073) or Paul Brown (419-571-4071).
