Every week year-round the Emma Chase Caf&eacute;&nbsp;invites musicians of all ages and levels to bring their acoustic instruments to Cottonwood Falls for a jam session.

And no, this event is not about the famous hard rock musician named Meat Loaf I listened to in college. Held in Paxico, the festival named for one of our favorite comfort foods features a parade, car show, music, children’s activities and, of course, the Meatloaf Cookoff as the highlight of the day.
