The events have grown in popularity over the years and are a must attend for BBQ aficionados and those who just enjoy great food and a good time.
This year will feature many competitors all in quest of being branded the best BBQ. Last year’s 1st place winner, Smoking Down South, and 3rd place winner, The BBQ House, will return to defend their titles.
Friday evening, from 5-7pm, is the “event before the event.” During this time, local chefs will compete against one another cooking “Anything But BBQ.” Come visit and see what can happen when fire meets food— just for fun.
On Saturday, Surfside’s Annual BBQ Festival begins at 10am on Surfside Drive where the BBQ competitors vie for your vote. There will be live music, games, and inflatables and face painting for the kids. More than seventy vendors will be in attendance. The music kicks off at 10:30am with bluegrass by Alan Bibey & Friends; then from 1-4pm, the Josh Brannon Band will play country music tunes.
Admission is free, and both events are held in the public parking lots at the intersection of Surfside and Yaupon Drives.
