  • Best Beef Brisket
  • Grand Champion
  • Dinosaur Bar-B-Que People's Choice Pork Rib
  • Mayor’s Choice

Your favorite People’s Choice Awards are back this year with $2 pork rib tickets. Tickets can be purchased at the information tent located at the entrance of Front Street, starting at 3:00pm and can be redeemed between 5:00pm and 6:30pm at any of the participating competitor booths.
