Hudson, Ohio (February 12, 2010) – Summit Charitable Events Foundation (SCEF), organizer of the Hudson Wine Festival, is pleased to announce the first annual Hudson Blues & BBQ Festival to be held Saturday, June 19, 2010 on the First & Main green.
“We think the day before Father’s Day is the perfect launch date for this family oriented event,” comments Butch Bartlett, President of SCEF, “and we are excited to announce that we have selected the Hudson Athletic Booster Club to benefit from the net proceeds of
the inaugural event.”
General admission to the Hudson Blues & BBQ Festival will be free and the festival will feature three major components:
- A Family Backyard BBQ Competition where family teams compete for “Best Family BBQ” trophy and prizes as judged by a celebrity panel.
- Food vendors will barbeque on site as they compete for prizes valued at over $3,000 including the $1500 “Top Hawg People’s Choice Award” for best ribs. Ribs will be available for sampling at a minimal cost to the public who will vote to determine the winner.
- 6 hours of great Blues music performed by bands from Northeast Ohio.
Retail vendors will be located throughout the event site and will offer a variety of barbeque products and community services. Other activities are being planned in cooperation with Hudson Athletic Booster Club.
