Tickets are on sale now for the "Angel Fire Food and Wine Roundup," a four-day extravaganza that organizers hope to make into an annual event.

The Western-themed food and wine event, sponsored by Texas-based A Bar N Ranch, will take place Aug. 24-27. Guests will be able to enjoy Western cuisine, wagyu beef, fine wines, craft brews, artisanal spirits and work by famous chefs, winemakers, brewers and distillers during the roundup.

The four-day festival will include guest chef luncheons, cooking demos by top chefs from around the country, Dutch oven cooking demos, wine tastings and seminars, mushroom hunts, guest chef dinners in private residences, silent auction events and artisanal spirits and craft brew tastings. Additionally, the event includes a "Boot Scootin' BBQ and Western Dance" at the Angel Fire Resort Country Club, a benefit golf tournament, a "Bloody Good Bacon Brunch" and "Chuck Wagon Breakfast."

Chicago's, Meathead Goldwyn, Texan Cowboy Gourmet Chefs, Tom and Lisa Perini and Harry Soo (head chef at California-based Slap Yo Daddy BBQ) are just some of the attending chefs who will lead cooking demos.
