This year’s festival will feature a 4 meat competition (chicken, pork ribs, pork shoulder, and brisket) as more than 40 BBQ Masters and backyard chefs face off to take home the prize.

The festival takes place on Saturday, July 14th with Pro Pitmasters and Backyard Chefs competitions, food vendors, local craft beer, live music and more.
