Guess what time of the year it is? The Suncoast BBQ & Bluegrass Bash time! One of Southwest Florida’s most popular annual events is being held this weekend at the Venice Municipal Airport Festival Grounds.

There are so many reasons why the Suncoast BBQ & Bluegrass Bash is such an awesome event! BBQ lovers can participate in the Florida BBQ Association sanctioned BBQ competition. And while most contests such as this don’t allow the public to taste the delicious BBQ presented, you absolutely can here! Get ready to dance along, or bring a blanket to sit and relax, to music from top International Bluegrass Music Association award winners and Grammy nominated acts such as The Boxcars, The Grascals, and Flatt Lonesome! There will also be plenty of activities for the kids;  bouncy houses, face painting, potato sack and three legged races. And to top it all off...this festival is completely FREE!

The Suncoast BBQ Bash is not only a fun party for the community, but more importantly, it is for an excellent cause--- The Suncoast Foundation for Handicapped Children (SFHC), as well as other non-profit agencies in the area.

We look forward to seeing everyone this weekend for a “A Finger Lickin' & Hot Pickin' Good Time”!!


TIME: Gates open at 5pm Friday & 10am Saturday
