This year, we’re hoping to double that donation with the growing support of the town and all of our attendees. As of today, our beer offerings include over 20 breweries who will be bringing at least two to three selections each, and we’re adding to that number.”

Professional BBQ cookers will be coming from up and down the East coast to compete in this contest. Pro BBQ food vendors will be there for you to try the best BBQ you have ever eaten.
