Get Ready for a Saturday BBQ Bash in Longview, TX

BBQ Bash Cook-Off

Saturdays and BBQ go together like sweet tea and summertime. Step outside this weekend, and attend the 2017 BBQ Bash Cook-Off & Festival. There’s unlimited food, games for the kids, and free giveaways!

I Came for the ‘Q

The BBQ Bash Cook-Off & Festival sticks true to its name. On September 23, come to Flyin’ Feathers Ranch from 11 a.m.–3 p.m. Once you arrive, run and grab a plate from one of the cook-off chefs. While it may be tempting to devour your BBQ in a tornado of messy bliss, take a moment to note the subtle flavors in each preparation. Guests are asked to vote on their favorite BBQ, and the winner will be announced at the end of the festival. The BBQ is all you can eat, so don’t feel bad getting seconds from your favorite contestant. They’ll be happy to see you back!

Aside from being well fed, you’ll enjoy live music by Leap of Faith, cupcake wars, and raffle drawings. Among the raffle prizes is a vacation to Arkansas, so make sure you enter for a free chance to see one of the most scenic parts of the country.

Don’t leave the kids at home for this one. There will be youth activities like jump houses and face painting. Additionally, budding young fish wranglers can participate in the kids’ fishing rodeo from 8 a.m.–10:30 a.m.

Admission is $20 for adults and $15 for youth. Children under 10 are admitted free of charge.


Thanks to the efforts of the Longview Teen Court, the BBQ Bash is providing fun for people all over the Longview community. But this event isn’t just about refining your BBQ critiques. Proceeds from the event will benefit the teen court and help fund programs that positively impact local youth. If you’re interested in becoming a sponsor or vendor at the event, call the court at 903-237-2736.
