2020 International Bar-B-Q Festival – CANCELLED Downtown Owensboro

May 8 all-day
2020 International Bar-B-Q Festival - CANCELLED @ Downtown Owensboro | Owensboro | Kentucky | United States

2020 International Bar-B-Q Festival will take place in downtown Owensboro, KY on Friday, May 8th and Saturday, May 9th.

A Festival created for food and fun in 1979 to celebrate the long-standing reputation and claim-to-fame for “Good Ole Daviess County Bar-B-Q” and to provide a forum for local charitable organizations to raise funds to support their causes.

The competition is fierce and the flavors rich as local cooking teams produce the best that their secret recipes have to offer in an effort to win the Governor’s Cup, the prize awarded to the best overall Bar-B-Q cooking team. Even backyard cooks get lean and mean during The Backyard Cook-Off competition for best grill master, preparing delectable treats to share with festival attendees.

The International Bar-B-Q Festival serves up non-stop entertainment that is sure to please all ages with performances featuring a variety of music and dancing that highlight local, regional and national talent. Our Festival Plaza will offer seating and eating areas, adult and regular beverages, and free entertainment on both Friday and Saturday.  Other entertainment can be enjoyed throughout the Festival including other competition events, cooking/eating events, 5K Run/Walk and many more.

Festival attendees can sample burgoo and bar-b-q sandwiches from the cooking teams up until the main event on Saturday afternoon when the mutton, pork, chicken and burgoo is ready for sale by the pound and gallon.  This is a long standing tradition and is worth standing in line to purchase bar-b-q from your favorite team.

Come for the fun! Stay for the fun!  Visit bbqfest.com for complete details and helpful information!
