"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 give back to our community by donating all of the proceeds to support homeless children and their mothers at Home of Hope at Gwinnett Children’s Shelter.

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. School of Rock, The Midland Station Band, Georgia Red Clay and Pickup Line will play on Saturday. See you there!

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.
