Beach Boogie & Barbecue
The race to see who has the best pork in the state heats up once again this Labor Day Weekend for the 8th annual Beach Boogie & Barbecue Festival. This 3 day event is a celebration of delicious BBQ, free live entertainment, and family fun. More than 75 vendors will be in attendance featuring their barbecue in hopes of winning the more than $20,000 in cash prizes that will be awarded. Registered cooking teams will compete for the chance to win up to $10,000 for a 1st place finish in Saturdays BBQ championship. The 2nd place winner will be awarded $3,000, and $2,000 will go to the 3rd place finalist. Contestants finishing 4th will win $1,000, and 5th thru 10th place teams each walk away with $500.
For those wanting to simply enjoy the cuisine others have prepared, you will still have plenty of entertainment options. There will be live wakeboarding & fly board demonstrations, a kids zone for the children, and a beer and wine garden for the adults.
The fun begins Friday, August 30th with festival hours ranging from 6:00-9:30pm. On Saturday, August 31st, you can enjoy the activities from Noon-9:30pm. And things will wrap up on Sunday, September 1st with festival hours running Noon-5:00pm.
BBQ proceeds benefit the OMAR Shriners, whose mission is to improve the lives of children through their 22 hospitals. This is a non-profit organization that offers state of the art care to children under the age of 18 for orthopedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries & cleft lip and palate needs - regardless of the patient or patient’s family’s ability to pay for services.
Located at Grand Park and Forbes Court at The Market Common, just a few miles south of The Caravelle Resort, you’re just a short drive from the festival and a full weekend of family fun! Enjoy!
