If you’re born and raised in the South like me then you know how important and essential BBQ is to your diet. I can’t even begin to tell you how many conversations I’ve had with my friends and family over what restaurant or neighbor makes the best BBQ in Atlanta. People are crazy passionate about BBQ and that’s pretty awesome!
Passionate BBQ fans or those just looking for a fun time will not want to miss the 4th Annual Bar-B-Q Festival at Atlantic Station, Friday, September 14th and Saturday, September 15th. BBQ will be served from 10 of Atlanta’s Top BBQ Restaurants and 50 BBQ Teams will compete for bragging rights and cash prizes. Some of these teams are professionals and some teams are just bad ass, backyard pit-masters! They will all aim to achieve the highest score in categories like ribs, pork, and chicken!
When you finish chowing down on all of the BBQ deliciousness be sure to check out the great music lineup! Bands include Tony Bryant Blues Band, The Mosier Brothers, Joe McGuiness, and The Breeze Kings, just to name a few! An Invitational Car Show will also be going on and you can vote for your favorite ride.
One cool addition to this year’s festivities is that the reality TV cook-off show, BBQ Pitmasters, will be filming a full episode at this year’s Atlanta BAR-B-Q Festival.
So if you love the pig, the chick, or the beef then grab your tickets now or visit Atlanta Bar-B-Q Festival’s Website for more information!
Please note that food is not included in the the ticket price, but there will be tasty samples…
