NO BETTER WAY TO KICK OFF THE SUMMER THAN WITH A BARBAYQ!
Saturday, May 7th Noon-10pm
at the Anne Arundel County Fairgrounds
The Naptown barBAYq Contest and Music Festival is held each May at the Anne Arundel County Fairgrounds in Crownsville, MD. Thousands of Festival go-ers from the Mid-Atlantic come out to enjoy live music, great food and a KCBS sanctioned barbeque competition. It is a family affair with live music, FREE kids' activities in the Kid Korral (kids 12 & under admitted free), arts and crafts vendors and cooking demonstrations.
NEW THIS YEAR – we have moved the KCBS Competitors into the Festival and created the barBAYq Village. This will give festival-goers the chance to walk through and meet the competitors, but don’t expect them to give you their secret recipe!
It will be open on Friday night and all day Saturday.
