Eufaula Indian Summer Festival

Eufaula, AL
For several decades Eufaula has hosted the annual Indian Summer Festival the second weekend in October. The event, sponsored by the Eufaula Barbour County Chamber, is expected to draw even bigger crowds this year. Two new additions are being added to this year’s line-up. The annual Pet Parade with proceeds to support the Barbour County Humane Society will start the day at 9:30. This year’s theme is “Star Wars Pets.” The street will still be lined with numerous arts and crafts vendors, kid’s activities and food vendors, along with the ALAGA Car Show taking place from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 10.

Taking center stage on Saturday afternoon, the festival will feature the Lake Eufaula Outdoor Expo, Bluff City Barbeque Challenge and live music in the Chamber’s side yard. The Expo is free of charge to the public and open from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The Expo will feature vendors, experts and outdoor enthusiasts promoting a variety of outdoor activities. Event organizers are recruiting those who hunt, fish, camp, kayak, bird, bike and more. An archery demonstration will take place around 3:00 p.m. The general public should be able to test their skills with contests that afternoon. The Chamber was awarded a tourism grant from the Alabama Tourism Department last year for this year’s event. Vendors are still being accepted. Contact the Chamber today to sign up and reserve your spot.

The Bluff City BBQ Challenge allows pit masters from around the area to go head-to-head and receive bragging rights on just who has the best barbecue on the bluff. The contest will feature all day cooking outside at the Chamber. Judging by a panel of local celebrities will take place at 6:00 p.m. The People’s Choice Champion will be decided by the public. Vendors are welcome to sell barbecue from 4:00 - 8:00 p.m. and votes will be collected. Live music provided by Trest Richarson and Brittany Avery will be available on the side porch from 4:00 - 8:00 p.m. Anyone interested in competing in the inaugural Bluff City BBQ Challenge can see a full list of rules and fill out an entry form at

The Chamber acts as the primary source for promotion of tourism in Eufaula. Sallie Garrison, Executive Director, stated, “The Chamber is committed to promoting the exceptional resources of our community. By adding the Lake Eufaula Outdoor Expo, we feel it is a perfect match for combining our greatest assets with the activities people enjoy most about our community. The lake, the refuge, and the abundant hunting land all contribute to bringing folks here throughout the year. Showcasing them at the festival just makes sense.”
