Event Description

In Downtown Franklin, the air will be filled with the sweet aroma of hickory smoke and simmering sauce for the inaugural ‘Great Americana Barbecue Festival‘ at Harlinsdale Farm.

Visitors will enjoy some of the most “finger licking” good barbecue around prepared by professional pit masters and iron chefs from across the country – all within the confines of Franklin Tennessee.

The Second Annual Great Americana BBQ Festival has prize money of $10,000 for Pro Division and Backyard Teams and is a KCBS-sanctioned event.

It will be a Jack Daniels and American Royal qualifier. Competitors will receive prize money from 1st to 10th place in the Pro Division.

The barbecue contest will fill up quickly with maximum of 50 teams in the Pro Division and 50 Backyard Teams.
Patrons will enjoy local artisan flavors from Tennessee distilleries and craft beers (21+).
Additionally, the festival will feature live music, craft vendors, a variety of food vendors and a kid’s zone with Touch A Truck and all sorts  of ways for the little ‘pit masters’ to run, jump and play.
The music stage will feature some of the biggest and brightest young talent Music City has to offer. Plenty of special events during the day will make this a “must attend” event for the entire family!
The BBQ festival is hosted by The Franklin BBQ Society and The Franklin Noon Rotary Club.
