While America celebrates its 237th birthday this July 4th, the Kenmore brand will be making 100 wishes and toasting to its centennial year. While fireworks fly and family and friends gather around, one thing is for certain — family favorite recipes are the heroes of any summer celebration.

This summer, the Kenmore brand is on a mission to find America’s best-loved recipes at select State Fairs. The Ohio State Fair will feature our Greatest Generations of Grilling Cook-Off, for all your best BBQ sauces, rubs and more! At the Wisconsin State Fair, we’ll be looking for Family Favorite Fruit Pie recipes at the competition. And at the famous Iowa State Fair, we look forward to choosing a delicious Honored Harvest Time recipe.

If you’re not near a State Fair, don’t worry, you can still be in the running for our summer long contest and some great prizes! Submit your favorite family recipes on cookmore.com for your chance to win:

  • A $5,000 Kenmore kitchen appliance makeover
  • A trip to New York for the Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival, and have five winning recipes served up along with the nation’s best.
  • A feature in the limited edition Kenmore 100th Anniversary Cookbook
