2nd Annual Great Maine BBQ Challenge
September 22 @ 5:00 pm - September 24 @ 6:00 pm
Come join us Sept 22nd-24th down at bass park in Bangor for the Second annual Great Maine BBQ Challenge.
If you would like to witness 30 pit-masters and their teams hard at work creating only what we can refer to as smoked delicacy, this is the event for you. Want ribs? We’ve got that. Brisket? Yup! Pulled pork? Um, yup! You get the point right? This isn’t amateur hour folks. This is BBQ in all its glory. The weekend will host two national competitions. A KCBS state championship! and an NEBS competition with a combined $20,000 prize pool! 45 sanctioned judges from all over the country are flying out to judge this event. For more specific details on the schedule visit www.Greatmainebbqchallenge.com.
As if that isn’t enough you’ll also be able to enjoy live blues bands all weekend long. That’s right this is BBQ so it’s blues.. that’s it. Anything else would be blasphemy!
And to show our support to the community we love we will also have dozens of local vendors participating in the event to make the total experience one to remember.
One more small detail. While your devouring that tender brisket or juicy pulled pork you’ll be helping kids across Maine! All proceeds from the event will go to Eastern Maine Children’s Hospitals!
So wrap your heads around this folks. Great American cuisine, great music, a great competition like you’ve never seen, and for a great cause.
$10 entry boys and girls, but get this. Your going to get $5 in pig bucks to spend at the event with your entry fee!!!
$35 gets you a weekends pass and all access to the people’s choice tent and VIP access line at the beer tent!
