Taste the Best!

One of the things that make our BBQ Contest stand out is that generally the the public doesn't get the opportunity to sample genuine competition BBQ, but not here! Many of the teams offer their finger lickin' yummy BBQ for sale to the public. There are four contest categories: chicken, ribs, pork, and beef brisket. Up to 50 Championship BBQ teams are excepted to compete at this year’s contest including world champion teams like Jack’s Old South, Big Papa’s Kitchen, Swamp Boys BBQ, Hot Wachulas, Blitzkrieg BBQ, Sweet Smoke Q, Awesome Que, Whiskey Bent, and Git–R-Smoked. This is the largest contest in Southwest Florida.

An Afternoon of Bluegrass

We consider the Bash to be like one big family outing. Lots to eat, fun and games, things to see and discover, but it wouldn't be complete without a great afternoon of the best bluegrass has to offer. Well, we have that too! The Suncoast BBQ and Blugrass BASH is please to bring you top International Bluegrass Music Association award winners and Grammy Nominated acts. The Box Cars, The Grascals, and the Lonesome River Band.
