The date’s been set for the International Bar-B-Q Festival in Owensboro, Kentucky. Far Western Kentucky has some mighty fine pork cooks, but mutton also takes centerstage at this festival on May 7th & 8th, 2010.
The festival’s site boast the banner, “Welcome to Bar-B-Q Paradise!”
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 grill masters get lean and mean during The Classic Cook-Off competition, preparing delectable treats to share with festivalgoers. – BBQFEST.COM
The International Bar-B-Q Festival serves up non-stop entertainment, carnival rides, face painting, pie- and mutton eating contests and the Festival’s Family Pavilion.
