Music City BBQ Festival
I just read about a joint Memphis BBQ Network and KCBS contest that is going to be held in Nashville. The contest will take place August 28-30 at Riverfront Park. I am sure that a website will be coming soon, but here is the info that I found on Facebook:
Music City USA's first annual BBQ Festival will be held August 28, 29 & 30, 2009 downtown Nashville at Riverfront Park and First Ave.
The BBQ competition will host some 75 cook teams and has been jointly sanctioned by Memphis BBQ Network (MBN) and Kansas City BBQ Society (KCBS). The Music Festival will headline local Music City talent. This Green event will benefit the Shriners Hospitals. http://www.shrinershq.org/Hospitals
Nashville’s Brian Hamilton, Tom Kiermaier and Frank Platt are organizing this event. Would you like to participate as a BBQ team, Judge or as a volunteer? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get you involved.
This event is family friendly and open to all age groups. If you love BBQ, Music and Beer, plan a StayCation weekend of fun. We'll have interactive games for your kids along with food and crafts from local vendors and merchants.
I am not really sure how teams will get setup on the Riverfront, but I will leave that for someone else to figure out.
