The Celebrity & Chef Cookoff is a night of celebration in support of our historic Orpheum Theatre, held at INTRUST Bank Arena with an Iron Chef-style cooking competition as the main entertainment, featuring six celebrity/chef teams competing for first place.

Surrounding the main event are tasting tables from local restaurants (stay tuned for updates). Get ready to bid in the silent auction, or go big with our live auction, including the teams’ finished dishes up for grabs. Have fun while supporting your Orpheum theatre!

Admission includes entry to the event, cocktails, a taste of Wichita’s best restaurants, and a bid number for the auctions.
