Maryland State BBQ Bash returns this weekend (August 13-14, 2010)

The 9th annual Maryland State BBQ Bash returns this weekend, Friday, August 13th from 4pm to 10pm and Saturday, August 14th from 12pm to 10pm. The event is sponsored by the Bel Air Downtown Alliance.

Not only is there food vendors, live music, an amateur contest, an exhibitor area, but there is the section called Little Piggies Fun Zone filled with children's activities. And it's all FREE (except for the food at the vendor's stations, of course!)

There will also be a raffle for a 53” Viking Grill with cart, cover, and accessories. Tickets cost $10, or you can get 2 tickets for $20.

This year, more than 60 barbeque grilling teams from Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania have signed up to compete for $12,000.00 in prize money as part of the Maryland State BBQ Championship, sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS).

New this year at the bash will be a "Sidewalk Bash", which will feature local merchants.
