The East Coast DOG for 2020 has been cancelled!

We regret to inform everyone, that the East Coast DOG has been cancelled this year. Due to the pandemic, and the safety of everyone involved, not to mention the restrictions needed, to even attempt this, we feel the best option is to not hold it this year. Anyone who has already paid for registration, the cook off, or t-shirts, will be receiving a refund shortly. Don’t forget, there will be no East Coast DOG next year in 2021, as we will be hosting the National Dutch Oven Gathering. The dates will be one week later than our usual time. The National DOG will be held on September 16th through the 19th in 2021. We hope you can all join us. Please check back here for information, and to know when our website is up for the National DOG.

Thank you, and we hope to see you next year!



The East Coast DOG is open to anyone who has an interest in Dutch oven cooking, regardless of your skill level. We encourage everyone to come and join us for a fun day of learning, cooking, meeting some great people and of course eating. Whether you are a seasoned veteran, or have never touched a black pot before, there is always something for you at the East Coast DOG. We will be having Dutch oven classes, a one pot cook-off, and a potluck dinner at the end of the day. We are also not far from Gettysburg, Hershey, and Lancaster, if you would like to do some sightseeing. If you aren’t sure you are ready to cook, the public is welcome to come and talk with any of the cooks participating. So bring your iron, and cook up some goodness. It is going to be a great event, and we hope you will join us.

Thanks for visiting! Please, also visit our sponsors and participants websites below. Without their support, we wouldn’t be able to put on this great event.
