2010 MUSIC CITY BBQ FESTIVAL – More than Food & Entertainment: Benefits Worthy Causes for the Communities!
Located on First Avenue at Riverfront Park at the foot of world famous downtown Honkytonk Lower Broadway, the festival will be visited by an estimated crowd of over 25,000. The festival is organized by a volunteer team of over 400 people who will donate over 10,000 community service hours to make sure we are able to give a portion of the proceeds to the Shriners Childrens Hospitals, the Monroe Carell Jr. Childrens Hosptial at Vanderbilt and the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge and Camp Horizon.
On Friday and Saturday, August 27th and 28th, the festival will continue with over 100 BBQ cook teams will competing for cash and prizes in a Tennessee State Champion event sanctioned by the Memphis BBQ Network and the Kansas City BBQ Society. Saturday will also find events at the Grand Ol’ Porker Arena including a “Peoples Choice Award”, where you can sample the teams fare, a Viking Cooking demonstration and a mini brew fest. And don’t forget about our Kid Fun Zone.
Is There Music? – YES! Did we mention the we are Music City USA. And where else are you going to find the best music in NashVegas on Friday and Saturday nights? On the Grand Ol’ Porker Stage. And, there is no additional fee for the music – the cost is included in all tickets.
