The South Georgia BBQ and Outdoor Festival will be held at Central Square Complex in downtown Douglas, September 8, 2017, from 1:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. and September 9, 2017, 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
Vendors and sponsors are being sought to fill both exhibit halls inside Central Square Complex and the outside grounds as well.
Event organizers are planning a festival packed with a combination of events that will include GBA BBQ Competition with a grand prize of $5,000 – the largest GBA payout, Motorcycle Show and Dice Run, NAPA/Brooks Auto Parts Car Show, Friday night concert featuring Midnight Riders - Allman Brothers Tribute Band at the Martin Centre, special demonstrations and workshops, kids play area, food vendors, general and arts/craft vendors, hunting and fishing gear/apparel, motorcycle/car accessories, and more!
“We are looking for sponsors who want to help grow this festival for Douglas-Coffee County and our region,” says Georgia Henderson, Public Information Director. “It takes a great community effort to be able to grow this event each year as well as attract a large attendance. As in the past with other festivals and events, we want to offer a variety of exhibitors, educational opportunities, great food, and fun activities for all ages.”
Attendees are guaranteed a two day event that is packed with live demonstrations, hands-on activities, celebrity appearances, and fun for the entire family. No general admission, however, fees do apply for the Friday night concert and other activities.
