This year’s blues headliners are Taj Mahal Trio on Friday & Roy Rogers & the Delta Rhythm Kings on Saturday. 60 professional barbeque teams from around the country compete in the Indiana State Championship Barbeque Cook-Off for cash/prizes and a chance to represent Indiana at the Kansas City Barbeque Society’s world championship. There’s a Backyard Blast cooking competition for amateurs and a Kid’s Q for the youngsters. Riverboat cruises, a 5K walk/run and the “Piglet Pen” children’s play area, round out the offerings for a great family weekend. Only $20 for both days!
