6th Annual Sip & Swine BBQ Festival
Benefiting the Home of Hope at Gwinnett Children's Shelter
March 5-6, 2021

It's back! Join us March 5-6, 2021 when over one hundred of the best barbeque teams will converge on Coolray Field for the sixth annual Sip & Swine BBQ Festival, benefiting Home of Hope at Gwinnett Children’s Shelter.

The two-day festival will feature plenty of food and craft vendors and music from Pickup Line, Georgia Red Clay, Chainsaw Hunnie and Rebel Union. Last year’s event was a smoking success, with more than 12,000 in attendance and over $85,000 raised for Home of Hope!

Pro and backyard barbeque teams will compete in chicken, pork, pork ribs, and beef brisket, and everyone will have a chance to vote for their favorite during the People's Choice competition on Saturday. Back again in 2021: The Kid's Q Competition is open for all aspiring chefs ages 6 to 15. Interested in competing? Check out all the details here.
