The Real Squeal BBQ & Music Festival

The Real Squeal BBQ & Music Festival is a two-day annual event sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society and Georgia State Championship.  We attract professional teams from near and far who compete for $20,000. Amateurs compete in the Backyard BBQ Contest and everyone has a shot at winning the sauce contest. Friday kicks off downtown with amateur & sauce contests, vendors, cruise-in car show, motor build-off, street dance, and fireworks. Saturday festivities are held at Partin Park where the professionals compete. You will also enjoy an Art & Crafts show, Quilt show, Kid’s Creative Play, Classic Car Show, the Pig Jig traditional music contest and more!
