The 2015 Pork in the Park Barbeque Competition will take place in downtown Newberry on Saturday April 18th from 11am-3:30pm. Newberry's Pork in the Park will be a Southern Barbecue Network sanctioned event, making the talent that much greater, and the judging that much tougher! This annual event will feature mouth-watering BBQ from SC, NC, GA, and TN and this year you'll have a chance to buy sampling tickets to taste our competitors best! We will be hosting live bluegrass music from Red Eye Gravy for you to enjoy as you take a seat in Memorial Park to feast on the great food. Kids inflatables and activities will be available as well. Bring your family out to feast on some of the best barbecue in the South!
