"Sip and Swine BBQ festival knocks it out of the park"

Gwinnett Daily Post

Sip and Swine’s mission is two-fold: to showcase and promote the appreciation of competition BBQ in a fun-filled festival environment and to support our community by donating all of the proceeds of the event to the Home of Hope at Gwinnett Children’s Shelter.

You be the judge! On Saturday, March 6th from 11:30-1:30pm, we’ll hold the People’s Choice competition. The People’s Choice competition is judged by YOU (festival goers who purchase a People’s Choice Award Taster Kit).

Whether you're a Pro or a Backyard Team, the Sip & Swine BBQ Festival offers up solid competition for either category. We also have great monetary prizes for winners in a large collection of categories, such as chicken, pork, desserts & more.

Live Music for Days

Since admission is FREE to Sip & Swine, there’s no charge for our concerts all day Friday and Saturday!  We’ve got an incredible line-up of performers for you to enjoy. Georgia Red Clay, Pickup Line, Chainsaw Hunnie, and Rebel Union will play on Saturday. See you there!
