2013 Art of BBQ Public Schedule
Saturday, September 21st
Presented by Back Alley Blues & BBQ and friends of the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, the Art of BBQ is one of Oklahoma’s most popular competitions, with a Grand Champion selected to represent the state in the National Championship Cook-off in October at the American Royal in Kansas City.
Nearly $10,000 in cash prize money will be awarded.
The Art of BBQ is celebrating its 15th year supporting the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa. This event features a world-class barbeque cook-off contest, officially sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) with all the food and beverage you care to enjoy.
Become a sponsor or purchase a VIP ticket for $50 and join us for a festive VIP Party at 7:00pm on Friday, September 21. You’ll find the VIP Party tucked away in the alley behind Back Alley Blues & BBQ. Purchase a VIP ticket and join us for live music, alley painting, fun raffles/auctions, and mouth watering foods (while they last). High level sponsors have access to our VIP Lounge and will receive a fully-catered BBQ dinner plus the opportunity to learn more about community programs provided by the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa. We hope you’ll be a part of the excitement!
The Art of Barbeque helps support the important mission of the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa to bring the arts to Tulsa youth. Funds from the event underwrite ambitious efforts such as the Artists-in-the-Schools program, which gives K-12 kids a hands-on opportunity to participate in the arts right in the classroom. In an age of strained school budgets, it may be the only arts education many children receive. And federal-level studies clearly show its importance in terms of improved overall academic achievement and reduced rates of high-risk behavior.
