Barnesville Battle of the Bones Festival
The Barnesville Battle of the Bones Festival will be held from May 1-2, 2015 in downtown Barnesville, GA. Join us for our 11th annual BBQ event where we will have food, fun, and entertainment!
On May 1-2, downtown Barnesville will host the Barnesville Battle of the Bones Festival. In 2013, the BBQ competition was featured on the television show BBQ Pitmasters and in 2014 it celebrated its 10th anniversary. The event is sanctioned by the Florida BBQ Association and was declared a State Championship Cook-off by Governor Sonny Perdue in 2009. Last year, 36 pro cook teams competed in the event, which was also an automatic qualifier for the World Food Championships held in Las Vegas, NV.
The Barnesville-Lamar County Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that the 2015 event committee will be awarding its 8th annual scholarship in memory of the late Mayor Dewaine T. Bell. The scholarship is paid for by festival sponsorships as well as memorial paper pig sales.
The Custom Auto and Truck Show will feature cars, trucks, motorcycles, or any year custom vehicle or race cars. The show will be held in the United Bank parking lot and will begin at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 2. Registration is $15.00 per car.
The 2015 Barnesville Battle of the Bones event will certainly be an event you will not want to miss. We encourage you to participate as a spectator, pro-cook team, musician, or vendor. For more information, please contact the Chamber at (770) 358-5884.
