Vat of Booya.

Booya Days

On the last weekend of September, the folks in Cadott get together to enjoy a steaming bowl of Booya. This community festival is a great place for friends and neighbors to get together for gossip and catching up. Come on down and enjoy a free bowl of Booya.

What is Booya, you ask? It is a soup cooked in a large pot outdoors over a wood fire stirred with a canoe paddle. Ingredients vary per year, but mostly the soup is made with chicken, hamburger, potatoes, carrots, tomatoes, rutabagas and onions. Very tasty.
