The Chillin’ & Grillin’ BBQ Festival is a prime opportunity to sample some delicious barbecue. This year we are holding the event at Platinum Air Airport across from the Pogue Airport at 101 John Hess Dr. This fun Sand Springs’ event is much more than a cook off; it features live music, arts and crafts, beer garden, helicopter rides and a Kids Zone with plenty of fun children’s activities. Of course, the star of the show is the BBQ, and guests will have the chance to savor plenty made by talented cooks. This event is sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society and is an OKBS Clever Team of the Year competition.
Friday’s events kick off with live music by the Dylan Whitney Band, also an open beer garden and arts and crafts. For AMATEURS that like a little competition the Backyard Contest is perfect for you. It consists of only chicken, pork ribs and burgers that will be prepared and judged. Overall Champion will win $500 in the Backyard contest.
Saturday will feature the KCBS contest, OKBS Clever of the Year competition, People’s Choice BBQ tasting (open to the public), Ms. Jennifer Marriott will perform, a beer garden, arts and crafts vendors, helicopter rides, car show, poker run and Kids Zone with bounce houses, Kettle Corn, Harper’s Hut Shaved Ice and a train.
