MARCH 11, 2023


The annual BBQ & Blues Cook-off started in 2009 as one of the Foundations biggest fundraisers. It is an outdoor food and music event held in Downtown Foley’s Heritage Park the second Saturday of March. An Alabama Barbecue Association Trail and Kansas City Barbeque Society sanctioned event, the barbecue cook-off attracts both corporate and individual teams competing for bragging rights in several award categories. Festival goers enjoy great food, popular blues bands and children’s activities. All proceeds support the South Baldwin Chamber Foundation. Thanks to the generosity of event sponsors and volunteers, the impact on our community and schools increases each year.


Join us on March 10 for the Friday Night Kick-off event from 5-9 pm. Enjoy live entertainment and a DRAWDOWN! Tickets for Friday night are $10; includes entry to the drawdown and must be purchased in advance. Food trucks and beverage sales will be open for business; no children’s activities available. Note: Tickets for Saturday’s cook-off are sold separately.
