With the Labor Day Weekend quickly approaching we thought we’d tell you about the 6th Annual Beach, Boogie & BBQ Festival that’s being held September 2-4 in Grand Park at Market Common, Myrtle Beach. If you’re coming for the event and looking for accommodations check out our Myrtle Beach Rentals.
This is a family-friendly festival, in close proximity to many of our Myrtle Beach Rentals, organized by the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, and will feature free live entertainment, wake board demonstrations, and free boat rides. Plus you can meet celebrity Chef Richard Blais, winner of BRAVO TV's 'Top Chef: All Stars' hit show from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday! This year marks the first time the festival is extended with Sunday activities!
There will be live music on Friday, September 2, from 5:30-9 p.m. There is an "Anything Goes" Competition, with samples for $1 each from 6:30-8:30 p.m. (While Supplies Last). Tru Sol will play from 5:30-6:45 p.m., The Tams 7:30-9 p.m., Food, Arts/Crafts & Business Vendors- 5:30-9 p.m. The Beer and Wine Garden will be open from 5:30-9 p.m. Wakeboarding Demos on Grand Park Lake at 7 p.m.
The main attraction is the finger-lickin, lip-smackin' good food of course and there will be lots of it from food vendors and competitors. Those attending the festival can sample delicious barbeque samples from all of the competing teams on Saturday from 12 to 5 p.m. by purchasing a $10 wristband. Kids age 10 and under can sample free of charge. BBQ combos, platters, hot dogs and hamburgers will also be available.
On Sunday from 12-5 p.m. attendees can enjoy a wide variety of wings and look on as hungry competitors challenge each other in a wing 'eat-off'. Kids will do the same in a watermelon eating contest that follows. Lots of great prizes await the winners, as well as free watermelon for all attendees at 2 p.m.
Three cooking events promise to attract the nation's finest competitors: Anything Goes contest and tasting on Friday and the Official S.C. Barbeque Championship and Kansas City Barbeque Society Cook-off on Saturday. Each competition will award prize money.
