    16th Annual Hub City BBQ Cook-off: September 22, 2016


    The 16th Annual Hub City BBQ Cook-off will be held on Thursday, September 22, in downtown Lubbock from 5-8 p.m. Last year, over 7,000 people experienced some of the best BBQ on the South Plains as over 110 cooking teams competed for bragging rights of the best BBQ. 

    Tickets will be on sale from Aug. 1 until Sept. 20 for $25 for adults and $15 for children 6-10 and can be purchased at the Chamber offices at Select-A-Seat locations and online at www.selectaseatlubbock.com. Tickets will be available at the gate on the day of the event for $30 for adults and $15 for children 6-10. There is no charge for children five and under.

    This year the Hub City BBQ Cook-off is proving to be the biggest one yet! There are close to 100 cooking teams ready to claim bragging rights on the best BBQ on the South Plains.

    Held in downtown Lubbock on Broadway between Avenues Q and M, and just west of the Wells Fargo Center between Main Street and Broadway Avenue, over 7,000 members of the South Plains community will sample some of the best BBQ around.

    This year’s entertainment will be headlined by popular Texas Country music artist, Zane Williams, while the opening will be provided by the School of Rock, with local musicians playing some good ol’ rock and roll.

    Marketing for this event includes television, radio, newspaper and area billboards. Top level sponsors are listed on the 6,000 printed event tickets, and all sponsors are represented on the 2,000 flyers and 500 posters. Marketing also includes banner ads, sponsorship recognition and exhibitor information displayed on the Chamber website which averages 5,000 visits per month.
