FOLEY - Foley High School student Jackeline Hurtado is the winner for the 2021 BBQ & Blues t-shirt design. Her design will be featured on the shirts sold at the festival this year. Members of the South Baldwin Chamber Foundation and Chamber volunteers presented Hurtado with her framed artwork, a gift card, and wristbands to attend the festival.
This year’s BBQ & Blues Cook-Off is taking place on Saturday, March 13 in Foley’s Heritage Park. Gates open at 11 a.m. when attendants can begin sampling delicious food prepared by a multitude of teams.
Festival goers will enjoy award-winning barbeque, blues bands, craft and retail vendors, and children’s activities. Over 20 backyard division cook teams from across the Gulf Coast will compete for the Grand Championship title and awards. Enjoy foods within these competition categories: Chicken, Ribs, Boston Butts, Sauce and Anything “Butt” which includes exotic items, seafood, and desserts. Food trucks will also be onsite for those who want seconds.
All proceeds from the event benefit the South Baldwin Chamber Foundation, which supports thirteen local schools through programs and partnerships. The festival committee asks that all festival goers wear masks, use social distancing practices while standing in lines, and use hand sanitizer provided throughout the festival grounds.
Admission is $10 per person. Children ages ten and under are free. Tickets can be purchased at the gate. For more information, visit foleybbqandblues.net or follow us on Facebook @bbqandbluescookoff.
