Tri-state BBQ Festival

Get ready to fire up your barbecues as Dothan gets set to host the first tri-state barbecue festival.

With professional teams coming from as far as the Carolinas to compete for big money prizes, and backyard grillers competing for trophies, the event is sure to attract hoards of hungry wiregrass residents.

"It’s just another opportunity to have a new event which Dothan traditionally does a great job with events and this is another one that I think will prove to be a great event in years to come," said Robin Rainer, volunteer.

Festival organizers are say they have several more slots open for amateurs in the backyard competition. The event runs from June 23rd to the 24th. For an entry form and further information, go to
