Forget baseball, grilling is America’s favorite pastime and on Saturday, April 18 local teams will compete in the ultimate grilling competition. The 2nd Annual Simply Southern Jubilee Bluegrass and Bar-B-Que Festival will feature a “Backyard Grillers” Competition, the music of The Thomas Tillman Band, Robinson's Racing Pigs and of course, Bar-B-Que. Unlike other Bar-B-Que Festivals, the Backyard Griller’s Competition gives Bar-B-Que beginners and neighborhood grilling legends a chance to compete for cash prizes and the title of “Best Backyard Griller.”
Food and a little friendly competition provide the perfect mix for a day of family friendly fun. The kids will love the children’s area and all ages will enjoy chatting with Barney Fife and Gomer Pyle. Add adventures like helicopter rides and people grilling in the back of a Volkswagen Beetle and you have an event no one should miss. “This is truly going to be a Henry County classic,” stated Charles Woodroof, Chairman of the Henry County Chamber of Commerce. “What a great way to enjoy some of Henry County's greatest assets…neighbors, great BBQ, a beautiful park, music and down home fun!" The festival will be held at Nash Farm on Friday and Saturday, April 17 & 18, 2009. Gates will be open from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Friday and from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for children ages 6-12 and children 5 and under admitted free.
The event is sponsored by Henry County Parks and Recreation and the Henry County Chamber of Commerce/Convention and Visitors Bureau and all proceeds will benefit Haven House and Nash Farm.
