Barbeque lovers can participate in the People’s Choice Contest at the Bloomin’ Barbeque & Bluegrass Festival by purchasing a ticket to sample entries and vote for their favorite.
The People’s Choice Contest presented by Dolly Parton’s Lumberjack Adventure will take place between 2:30 and 3:30 pm on Saturday, May 21, 2016 during the 12th annual Bloomin’ Barbeque and Bluegrass Festival. The contest will be held at the Downtown Sevierville Commons around the gazebo on Bruce Street.
After years of request from event attendees to sample and vote for the best barbeque, the contest was held for the first time during the 2015 festival.
People’s Choice Contest Tickets are $15 each and those who purchase will be able to sample savory pulled pork from participating championship cook teams and vote for their favorite.
Tickets may be purchased at the festival or in advance at the Sevierville Chamber of Commerce office located at 110 Gary Wade Blvd. For additional information call Phil Word at 865-453-6411 or email [email protected]. Please remember that there are only a limited number of tickets available so purchasing early is always a good idea.
