SOOIE. Mauldin BBQ Cook-off
Friday, September 20, 6-9 p.m.
Saturday, September 21, 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.
(Third Weekend in September)
SOOIE. features 25+ cookers from all over the Southeast, competing to bring the best BBQ to Mauldin. Paired with live music and family fun, this can’t-miss festival is the perfect pig-out.
The festival opens Friday night with our Anything Butt competition, where participating Cookers serve anything BUTT their BBQ to pique your taste buds. Sliders, grilled chicken, smoked cobbler — the only way to know what’s cookin’ is to come try it for yourself. Friday will also feature live music by Little Lesley & the Bloodshots.
Saturday features the main event, a BBQ Cook-off with a panel of certified BBQ Tasters from the South Carolina Barbeque Association. The public will also have a chance to cast their vote for the best BBQ and the winner of the People’s Choice Award. Saturday will also feature live music by The Trapfire Brothers.
Both days will include a kids’ zone with bounce houses and fun activities!
