The Bangalow BBQ & Bluegrass Festival is on again this winter 2018 and is going to be another unmissable celebration of appetising local food and lively live music. Sponsored by Stroud Homes, the Bangalow BBQ & Bluegrass Festival is fast becoming one of the largest annual barbecue competitions in Australia, and offers a fantastic time for locals and visitors to enjoy great local food and live bluegrass music in one fun-for-all-the-family event.

Taking place over two days at the Bangalow Showgrounds near Byron Bay, the Bangalow BBQ & Bluegrass Festival is dedicated to supporting local performing arts and food culture – and it’s all for a great cause. Staffed completely by volunteers, all the proceeds of the not-for-profit Bangalow BBQ & Bluegrass Festival go to charity, with last year’s event raising over $20,000!

For fans of bluegrass, the Bangalow BBQ & Bluegrass Festival is an unmissable music event to attend this winter, offering a fantastic lineup of local bluegrass musicians over a two-day period. At the same time, enjoy the popular barbecue cook-off (sponsored by Firebrand) where entered teams will go head-to-head for a number of specialty prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place, with the 2018 Firebrand Grand Champion receiving $1500! Meat categories will include pork ribs, pulled poro, beef, and chicken, with 100% of entry fees being returned in prize money. Throughout the Bangalow BBQ & Bluegrass Festival you’ll be able to get your hands on traditional Australian barbecue, as well as enjoy a selection of craft beer provided by Byron Bay Brewery.

For an exciting weekend of barbecue and bluegrass, don’t miss the Bangalow BBQ & Bluegrass Festival this winter, taking place at the Bangalow Showgrounds on Friday 17th of August and Saturday 18th of August. All proceeds will go to a good cause!
