Yet the event is more than a competition: it’s a grand party featuring the music of several groups. Whether you like bluegrass, country or a blend of genres, the entertainment lineup has something for everyone.

Best of all, the BBQ Classic is a tribute to Devon Grube, a U.S. Navy SEAL who lost his life in December of 2016. The proceeds will go to his wife and three young children, as well as Operation Once in a Lifetime.

Tickets are on sale now. A weekend pass to the event is $20. Come enjoy the food and music, knowing the purchase price will go to a worthy cause.
