Louisville welcomes the 2013 Bar-B-Q Pitt Festival

May 31, 2013 by  

The sweet, meaty smell of Bar-B-Q wafted into the air in Louisville earlier this month, carrying with it the distinct notes of the beginning of summer.

Visitors flocked from across the region to get a bite of the savory, delectable pork being pulled straight from the grill. The annual Pitt Academy in Louisville, Kentucky, the venue at which the Bar-B-Q Pitt Festival is held every year, took place May 18.

The event’s website has been used to thank everybody for their attendance and sponsorship, and it seems that the Heavenly Pitt Bar-B-Que Sauce was particularly popular, as the organizers are now offering to sell bottles of it for $5 each.

The impressive cooks at the festival used a 120 foot hickory and oak BBQ pit and a 200 gallon burgoo pot to create delectable meals for an estimated 4,000 attendees. Many acclaimed restaurants, as well as indie cooks, participate in the large festival every year.

To prepare for participation in this festival, a lot of people contact a local printing company to handle their signage and promotional materials. Banner printing is a key component for the competitors as they usually want their company name to be highly visible to the judges and the public.

The good BBQ items are not the only reason why people attend this festival, however, as the game booths and kids’ area were of interest to the youngsters. Also of note was the Blues Tent, in which live music performances by The King Bee and Little T&A performed.
