Elkmont Lions Club Smokin' Railroad Street BBQ Cookoff
Held annually on the second full weekend of June in downtown Elkmont, this two-day barbecue cook celebrates the skills of the Backyard Division Cook Teams. Teams from all over will come to compete for the title of "Champion" in ribs, pork and chicken.
Festivities kick off Friday night with a free concert then revs up Saturday morning with arts and craft vendors, small business vendors, food trucks and food vendors and more.
It’s with great sadness that I inform you that the 2020 Smokin' Railroad Street BBQ Cookoff has been canceled. We are certainly facing some unprecedented times with our nation's current situation. We have been given strict rules from KCBS that has placed us in a bind, that we can’t safely meet their requirements. Also, we can’t ask our sponsors to take the money from their families and the families that work for them. We are already looking ahead to next year’s event and hopefully the return of some great competition.
