Now that the organizers have decided to go ahead with the 2nd Annual Bar-B-Q Festival, now is the time to get your tickets.

Tickets for the weekend of grilled food and great music will be limited to comply with social distancing guidelines.  The event is Friday, July 17 and Saturday, July 18 near the intersection of Highway 61 and Market St. in Hannibal.  You can click here to order tickets.

Organizers struggled for weeks about what to with the festival.  The public was overwhelmingly supportive on the group's Facebook page so that was the final piece of the puzzle to come together for the country music bash.  Last year--the first year for the event--drew more than 11,000 people for the weekend concert line-up.

This year's music headliners include Warrant, FireHouse and Easton Corbin.  The best BBQ masters in the midwest will also compete, with a top prize of $2000 at stake.  The event is limited to 12 teams.  You can find the form here on the Hannibal Bar-B-Q Festival page.
