4/25/17 – BASED ON INFORMATION FROM TVA, WE DO NOT ANTICIPATE THAT MCFARLAND PARK WILL BE IMPACTED BY FLOODING. UNLESS THE SITUATION CHANGES, WE PLAN TO CONTINUE WITH THE FESTIVAL AS PLANNED.
The Smoke on the Water Festival is more than just a BBQ cook-off – it’s an event for the entire family! Sanctioned by the Kansas City BBQ Society and the Alabama BBQ Association, this cook-off will determine the very best barbeque from among entrants participating from throughout the Southeast. Winners will compete for cash prizes totaling $6,000.
But, the festival includes so much more for everyone…
