Surfside Beach BBQ Festival: The Spot for Family Fun

  By  Visit Myrtle Beach

Surfside Beach, known as “The Family Beach,” invites you and your family to the Surfside Beach BBQ Festival on May 4th. The event celebrates all-things barbecue and so much more for thousands of locals and visitors.

Start on Friday May 3rd , from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. dive into the "Anything But Barbeque Event" where BBQ pros serve up their best bites.

On Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., a smokin’-hot barbecue competition will take over downtown Surfside Beach on Surfside Drive. In addition to delicious Southern barbecue served as the main course, there will also be children’s activities, local vendors selling creative wares, and live music performances rotating throughout the day. There will be something for everyone!

Each BBQ competitor will battle it out for your vote and the title of the Best BBQ in Surfside Beach, so dig in and eat up the glorious surroundings of the beach and ocean under the Carolina sun in this family town.
