Stone County BBQ and Blues Festival
A World Championship Barbeque Cook-off and Blues Music Festival!
In October, Blaylock Park in downtown Wiggins is the place to be if you love world-class BBQ, good down-home Blues or both. The annual event hosts a growing number of pit masters vying to qualify for the Barbecue Competitors Alliance Championship. Winners of this event earn points to compete in other invitational competitions around the southeastern region of the country. Local backyard BBQ aficionados aren’t left out. They get to watch the pros and are encouraged to join the fun for bragging rights in the competition.
The music sets the mood and enhances the festivities. Blues musicians from around Mississippi enhance the day with soulful sounds of legendary Blues musicians and a few even perform their own original tunes. If you love classic Mississippi Blues, you are sure to return year after year to this event.
This is a family friendly event, bring the kids along to enjoy the many fun and entertaining activities including face painting, drawing, and jumping experiences.
