Sponsorship Guide



Mark your calendars, the 2022 Boro BBQ Festival is coming back!

You’re going to want to be a part of this one!

When the inaugural competition was held in 2013, 17 teams showed up to compete for the best BBQ chicken and ribs. On May 7, 2022, 48 teams from across the country will for the title of Grand Champion. More importantly, 6,000 people are expected to attend to cheer them on!

While serious competitors are sweating it out at the Dr. George Smith BBQ Battle, middle Tennesseans will be soaking up the rays with great food, games and contests, and live entertainment. Your sponsorship dollars will put your brand in front of thousands of Middle Tennesseans.

And don’t forget, our event supports dozens of non-profits in our community.
