South Africans from Texas and far beyond get together at the Potjie Festival for a weekend of camping and traditional South African cooking competitions using a potjie, a 3 legged cast-iron pot brought to Texas by South African immigrants, to celebrate South African heritage. The festival features foods such as boerewors, droerwors, biltong, and koeksusters.

On Saturday there are two competitions, the Boerewors competition and the Biltong competition. On Sunday competitions include a bread competition, dessert competition, the main potjie competition, and an open potjie competition. Prepared entries are submitted to a judging panel at a predetermined time for judging. The final competition category, a non-cooking category that also takes place on Sunday, is the cooksite competition. Contestants’ campsites are judged for things like traditional originality, effort, and spirit. A prize-giving for competitions is held on the Sunday evening.

During the weekend there are several other activities, including a “sokkie” (dance), cricket match and Afrikaans church service.
