Friday evening, folks from all over Texas made it to downtown Bryan for some fried food and live music.

The grills were fired up and ready go, although the steak cook-off won't start until Saturday morning.

Festival-goers can purchase a steak plate starting Saturday, at 11am, as well as taste wine.

A grape-stomping contest costs $5 to enter.

Teams will be competing in a steak cook-off throughout the day, and at least one team thinks they have first place, in the bag.

"We're absolutely going to win, confident, no doubt we're on top," said Mark Jurica. "Oh they'll taste it and see, we don't have to tell them anything, they'll find out by taste," said Jurica's teammate Mike Karr.

To taste any of the food or drinks, attendees need to buy tickets, rather than use cash.

There is no fee to get into the festival.

It opens at 10am on Saturday.
