The Real Squeal: Lyons Barbeque and Music Festival
October 11 & 12, 2013 : A Kansas City Barbeque Society Sanctioned Event in Lyons, Georgia
A family friendly event started in 2010 for our community held by the Lyons Better Hometown Program. Professional bbq teams compete in a Kansas City Barbeque Society sanctioned contest for $15,000 in prize money. Amateur teams compete in downtown Lyons on Friday where the public is invited to enjoy great barbeque and local entertainment. Bring your lawn chairs and enjoy visiting friends and neighbors and meeting our out of town visitors at this free event.
On Saturday in Partin Park, come out and watch the professionals complete in 4 categories of competition barbeque-pork shoulder, pork ribs, beef brisket and chicken. Many of our professional teams participate in our People’s Choice event in which you can purchase a block of tickets to taste and judge professional competition pork shoulder barbeque. Many of these teams also sell their barbeque to the public so come hungry because you certainly won’t leave hungry. Many other activities take place in the park including activities for children, an Indian Artifacts Show, Primitive Skills Demonstrations all day and enjoy live music in the park all day. Stay for the awards ceremony at 4 pm to discover who our KCBS judges have selected as the top 10 place holders in all 4 categories and as the Reserve Champion and Grand Champion are announced.
