Exciting news from one of our favorite summer events!
New sights, sounds, and spicy flavors are making their debut at this year’s Decatur BBQ Blues and Bluegrass Festival. The festival is pleased to announce Louisiana’s own TABASCO® Brand as our presenting sponsor in 2017.
“The festival’s primary goal will always be fundraising for the Community Center of South Decatur and with TABASCO Brand’s partnership we are on a great path to that goal in 2017,” said festival director Michael Vajda. “We can’t wait to work with this great brand to spice up the activities and programs for our BBQ vendors and attendees.”
One of those programs will be the 1st ever People’s Choice Award which will be presented to the BBQ vendor who best incorporates TABASCO Sauce into their signature BBQ dish that day. Attendees will vote throughout the day to crown the People’s Choice Champion.
“We are excited to join the fun at this year’s Decatur BBQ Blues & Bluegrass Festival,” said Jose Espinoza, Marketing Lead at McIlhenny Company, maker of TABASCO Brand Sauces. “We are proud to support the Decatur community and look forward to flavoring their world with a little TABASCO Sauce.” A new festival logo incorporating TABASCO Brand’s sponsorship has been created.”
Now in its 17th year, the festival will celebrate all things blues, bluegrass, and bbq on Saturday, August 12th from 2 pm – 9 pm. There will be fun for the entire family with a kid’s area and, for the second year, a multi-stage experience with more than 14+ hours of music from eight artists. We will simultaneously announce our festival lineup and ticket sales in several weeks.
