Memphis in May's World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest
5/16/2013 - 5/18/2013
Tom Lee Park, Memphis, TN
Details: Memphis in May's World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest is May 16-18, 2013 at Tom Lee Park. Hundreds of teams compete for over $110,000 in prizes and supreme bragging rights. Teams adorn their areas with elaborate decoration, trophies attesting to their boasting rights, and as one can imagine, clever and creative team names. While grilling is the main theme, the contest wouldn't be complete without the Ms. Piggie Idol competition where the finest swine tests their vocal skills, and grown men dress in tutus and snouts and women kick their heels (hooves) up. There is also a t-shirt competition and even a best booth contest.
