Haven’t been to the BBQ Festival the past 7 years? Here’s the info on the tastiest spring food festival in town:
DOTHAN, AL--- Clouds of sweet hickory-tainted smoke will again descend on the city of Dothan this spring at the 8th annual Tri-State BBQ Festival. Held the second weekend of April at the Houston County Farm Center, April 12-13, 2013 will be a fine weekend for enjoying the southern delicacy known as barbecue.
Last year, sixty-eight teams from around the Southeast competed for over $10,000 in prize money, trophies and bragging rights. The event maxed out their competition spaces in 2012, because it was featured on the hit TV show, BBQ Pitmasters and it is expected to have a full field of competitors again this year.
There are plenty of family-friendly activities all weekend, beginning with the all ages concert on Friday night, the BBQ Bash. There will be plenty of food available for sale, as well as drinks, games, and amusements for the kids. Then on Saturday April 13th, there is plenty to do with loads of barbecue-related fun and live music. One of the fan-favorites of the Tri-State BBQ Festival is the BBQ sampling on Saturday from 2:30-4:00. Spectators go from team to team sampling the barbecue and voting for their favorite. The fun runs on Friday April 12 from 5-10pm and all day Saturday from 10-10.
The event also offers more than barbecue, showcasing regional and local music, a huge classic car show, arts and crafts vendors, children’s activities and loads of family fun the entire weekend. Advance tickets purchased by March 31, 2013 are just $10 and are good for both days (all weekend) and can be purchased online or at The Main Event (257 S. St. Andrews St, downtown Dothan.) After March 31st, it is $10 per person per day, with children 6 and under free either day.
Team entry forms and additional information can be found at www.TriStateBBQ.com or by calling The Main Event at (334) 699-1475. Vendor spaces may available until the end of March, though the early bird discount is only through February 13th.
