ABOUT THE EVENT
In 1876, it wasn't uncommon for fortune seekers to consume beverages with names like Deadwood Lightning, Red Eye and Coffin Varnish. They also choked down foods like squirrel, rabbit, mutton and goat. 

Since then, fortune seekers continue to flock to Deadwood looking for good luck, great drinks and incredible food. We're happy you can join us for the second annual Forks, Corks and Kegs Food and Wine Festival. 

Come eat, drink and be merry in the footsteps of legends, and release your inner outlaw!

GOVERNMENT WARNING: (1) According to history, the consumption of alcohol in Deadwood may cause Mild Bill to behave like Wild Bill. (2) Consumption of alcohol in Deadwood can be the cause of, and solution to, all the world's problems.
