The first competition, the Anything Butt Competition, will begin on Friday, April 2nd at 5 p.m. with samples sold to the public. The winners who are chosen by the public will be announced on Saturday. Vendors and food trucks will be onsite along with the live band, Southern Kind, for a night of family-fun.

Then, on Saturday, April 3rd the main event – the BBQ Competition – begins at 9 a.m.! There are 14 BBQ Teams registered to compete, along with several craft, food, and retail vendors. The competitions include 1st place in BBQ, Best Rib, People’s Choice in Anything Butt, Best Cooking Tent, and the Grand Champion.
