BBQ All Around
The food you expect to find at the Sweet Corn and BBQ Festival is right there in the name: sweet corn and BBQ. And if you think this is a limited menu, and if this is your first time at the festival, then prepare yourself to be pleasantly shocked. First off, the sweet corn comes in two varieties: steamed or roasted. But the various seasonings which make this simple dish a whole meal of itself. Then there’s the BBQ. You probably already know that it’s either beef, pork, or chicken. But again, there are many styles which you may not have tried before. This is your opportunity to try out Memphis, Carolina, Texas, and Kansas City styles. That’s right, go ahead and try them all. There’s no better place to explore the hidden wonders of BBQ styles than at this festival.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a food festival without live music and performances. As you might expect, all music is western-themed. Country music and country dancing prevail when BBQ and sweet corn are on the menu. Kids have their own area where special magic shows, juggling shows, and summer camp games will keep them entertained the whole day.
