Sign Up Now for the Bakken Rocks CookFest!

The Bakken Rocks CookFest will celebrate its 10th anniversary when it takes its festivities to Grenora on July 17 and Twin Buttes on July 19. The event was started by the North Dakota Petroleum Council in 2008 to create a fun, friendly atmosphere where North Dakotans could learn more about the oil and natural gas industry, meet its players, and enjoy a free barbecue and live music at the height of summer.
The NDPC invites its member companies to cook at this year’s CookFests. There is no registration fee to participate, but companies are responsible for the cost of all food, drinks, utensils, etc. Signing up is easy. Simply contact Tessa Sandstrom for the Grenora event at or Tiffany for the Twin Buttes event at All we need is the contact information for anyone on your team who wants to be on our information list and if you require any special accommodations (generator for power or extra space). We’ll be in touch with updates as we near the event.
So come out and join us for the 10th Annual Bakken Rocks CookFest!
