City of Kennesaw's Pigs & Peaches BBQ Festival - August 26-27, 2016

It's time once again for festival fans and music lovers to converge in Kennesaw for two days of smoked and seasoned barbeque bliss!


​Check out up-and-coming artists and established talent on three stages of entertainment while chowing down on some of the best festival food in the Southeast. Stroll around and savor the smells. Shop, eat, drink and interact with over 200 vendors and exhibitors. Keep the little ones laughing and playing for hours in the Kid Zone — a family-friendly playground of inflatable jumpers, amusements and attractions.


​The festival features a Kansas City Barbeque Society sanctioned competition, recognized as a Georgia State Championship event, as well as Backyard BBQ, Anything Butt and Peach Dessert contests. New for 2016 is a Kids' Que cook-off for budding young pitmasters. Over $16,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded to contest winners.


​Saturday's activities will be capped off with a spectacular fireworks finale at 9:30pm.


The festival is located at Kennesaw's Adams Park (2753 Watts Dr., Kennesaw, Georgia 30144). Festival hours are Friday, August 26 from 6-10pm and Saturday, August 27 from 10am-10pm. Admission is FREE.
