Friday, July 8, 2022
The North Dakota Petroleum Foundation and dozens of oil industry participants will host Bakken Rocks CookFest July 19 in Trenton and July 21 in White Shield.

The Cookfests offer residents the opportunity to learn more about the oil and gas industry, hear from industry experts, meet the employees of companies working in their area, and best of all, eat some of the best BBQ in western North Dakota. There are also games and activities for kids, swag and giveaways, and live music, making the free event fun for the whole family.

The program begins with a Bakken Basics information session at 2:00 p.m., with the BBQ and live music to follow at 4:00 p.m.

The Bakken Rocks CookFests were started in 2009 when Bakken activity was just ramping up, and has rotated to two different communities each year ever since. The event has since grown to become one of the Foundation’s most popular among both community residents and industry employees and representatives.
