KY State BBQ Festival 2021 Update

The KY State BBQ Festival announces it will be taking a pause this year.  “Although we are disappointed with the postponement of the 2021 KY State BBQ Festival, we feel we cannot safely duplicate the experience that our BBQ fans look forward to with the potential COVID 19 restrictions that may still be in place in September” said Brad Simmons, President of the KY State BBQ Festival Foundation Inc, “this break will allow us time to regroup from a very challenging year. The health and safety of our festival-goers, volunteers, staff, sponsors, vendors, pit masters and the public will always be our top priority.”
