Event Information

12th Annual

BBQ Cookoff

August 9-10th, 2013
La Vernia City Park


General Event Information

The highlight of the annual BBQ Cookoff is the IBCA-sanctioned BBQ cooking competition, where teams compete for the best BBQ chicken, beef, and ribs. Cooking teams come from across the state and are very competitive about their cooking techniques and recipes.

But there is more to this event than just BBQ: this is a 2-day family event with something for everyone. All proceeds from this event go towards helping the La Vernia Park Foundation meet it's main goal and objective : Making park improvements!
