Rochester presents the Big BBQ and Blues Fest July 12th – 15th, 2012

May 11, 2012 by  

Highland Park will be the venue for Rochester’s Big BBQ and Blues Fest for four nights of cooking competitions and entertainment, as well as BBQ lunch and dinner specialties cooked up by rib masters from all over the country and lots of family fun.

The rib cook-off events are led by BBQ masters along with their teams of experts. Each team has a specialty such as dry rubs, secret sauces, pulled pork, chicken, and some of the most tender ribs to be found anywhere. There are plenty of picnic tables and grassy areas to enjoy the finger-licking BBQ samples and meals.

Entertainment will occupy two stages at the Highland Park. The RAM Trucks main stage will feature rock and blues bands, while The Guts and Glory stage will present local duo and solo artists.

Print companies from Rochester and surrounding areas will provide printing services for banners, flyers and brochures for this event. Several well-known companies are sponsoring this event, including Staybridge Suites, Ricoh, Miller Lite, House of Guitars, and RAM.

The price for a four-day ticket is $20 and includes entertainment. The ticket is transferrable so it may be shared with others throughout the event. Package pricing is also available for large groups or companies. This offers perks such as close parking, reserved tent space, VIP seating near the stages, and other features.
