Less than 5 months to go to the 10th annual Tri-State BBQ Festival!

We are already hard at work on the 10th annual Tri-State BBQ Festival to take place April 10-11 here in Dothan. We are looking at booking the bands, getting the entertainment lined up, and making sure we have a good selection of merchandise and  food vendors on site. Do you have any suggestions or ideas you’d like to see up implement? Let us know so we can look into it. Less than 5 months to go until the festival— it’s not a really long time for planning!

Also, sponsorships are available if your business wants to enjoy event marketing in front of a captive crowd! Give us a call if you’re interested. (334) 699-1475

Finally, this was the design chosen for this year’s shirts, on lime green T’s. After a couple years of darker colors (charcoal, black and grey) we wanted to brighten things up a little. More details coming soon on the festival!
