November 16, 2013 - November 16, 2013 - CONFIRMED!
From St. Nicholas BBQ Fest Website:
2013 brings exciting changes and new events to the St. Nicholas BBQfest. This event held November 14th through 16th is a community outreach of the St. Paul's Church on Main Street in Conway South Carolina. The festival kicks off with the Taste of Conway held in the Peanut Warehouse on Thursday night from 4:30 PM to 8:30 PM on November 14th. Saturday, November 16th opens at 9 AM with exhibitors, vendors, childrens activities, rides, games, food vendors, live music, animal exhibits, and our South Carolina Barbecue Association fully sanctioned barbecue cook-off, "The War Between the States".
Since 2005 the festival has given financial support to many of the local service providers including CAP, the Shepard's Table, the Friendship Clinic and Pharmacy, Father's place, Neighbors to Neighbors and Fostering Hope. These local organizations strive to meet basic needs of food, shelter, medical care and hope for those they serve and all net proceeds are distributed. The event started in the parking lot of St. Pauls church as the St Nicholas Market and has evolved into one of the largest festivals held in Conway South Carolina. This year will be no exception as it has grown to attract people from Eastern North and South Carolina and will continue to grow with our new "War Between the States" BBQ competition pitting the best North Carolina and South Carolina Pitmasters in competition to determine which Carolina's creates the best BBQ.
St Paul's provides the organizational leadership and the volunteer base, it would not be a success if it were not without the support of our area businesses and benefactors.
Mark your calendar and come join us, you'll enjoy your visit to the St. Nicholas BBQFest 2013!
