Solar Ovens

 Below are a few photos taken over the years at the  solar pot luck held every year at the end of April in Catalina State Park outside Tucson AZ. There is good solar cooked food, good music and good people. The second oldest solar event in the country.

 

The 29th Annual
Solar Pot Luck
This is the second oldest solar event in the country
April 16th 2011(Saturday)
10:00 a.m. until dark

Catalina State Park, Tucson, Arizona
11570 N. Oracle Rd., Tucson, AZ
Presented by Citizens for Solar

For information: Join Citizens for Solar and experience the flavors of solar-cooked food and learn about solar by viewing solar appliances and exhibitions (ovens, fountains, coolers, lights, electrical systems) and solar arts. The event is co-sponsored by Catalina State Park, Arizona State Parks.

We’ll have speakers and musicians throughout the day on a stage with a PA system powered by solar energy. The Potluck itself is at 5:00 pm. Bring your own oven and join us for cooking (oven set-up by 9:30 am, event opens to the public at 10:00 am), or if you do not cook with us, visit with us and bring some “solar” food to share: salad, watermelon, berries, etc. Ice is always welcome. Bring your own eating utensils (plate/bowl and fork/spoon) and help make Tucson’s Solar Potluck a waste-free event. Make sure you wear comfy shoes, a brimmed hat and sunscreen. The festival will be held come sun, rain or wind!

The cost of the Solar Potluck is free; $7/car to get into the Park.

The event is held in the “Large Group Use Area” of Catalina State Park, which is located on Oracle Road 5.2 miles north of Ina Road.
