The Smokin’ On the Suwannee BBQ Festival is a professional BBQ contest that is sanctioned by the Florida BBQ Association. Professional cookteams from all over the Southeast will compete for over $13,000 in cash and prizes and a chance to qualify for the prestigious Jack Daniels WorldChampionship BBQ contest and the American Royal BBQ contest in Kansas City. The contest is also a qualifier for the World Food Competition which will be held in Florida this year.

Several competition teams will be vending their world class BBQ for the public. There is an opportunity to purchase ballots for the “people’s choice” contest, where you’ll be able to taste 24 versions of pulled pork and vote on your favorite! The winner will receive a cash prize. Do you have what it takes to taste the best?

There will be live music from Friday night and Saturday. Many vendors with food, crafts, drinks to keep you cool in the heat.

For families, we’ll have FREE water rides and bounce houses to cool off.

This year, we’re sharing the space with the local riding club’s roping rodeo, with opportunities for kids to participate in fun activities.

The festival is hosted at the Suwannee Coliseum & Fair Grounds in Live Oak, Florida.
The proceeds from this year’s contest will go to help support the Back to School Bash (a local event put on by the community to support kids being prepared for the first day of school with school supplies and access to social services).
