About the event

The 6th Annual Squealin' on the Square combines this summer's heat with the sweet taste of BBQ!

Downtown Hopkinsville will be live with music from Xtraordinary Gentlement taking the Founders Square stage from 6-9 pm.

Squealin' on the Square will feature up to 10 teams battling for the coveted trophy and $250 cash prize.

The five-person teams (one head chef and up to four assistants) will cook BBQ throughout the day to get ready for judges to sample portions from each team before determining the winner in each of the three categories: chicken, ribs and chops.

The public gets in on the eats from 6-9 pm when teams with a valid permit have the opportunity to sell their prepared items. Thank you to Huhtamaki for sponsoring Hopkinsville's annual BBQ festival.

Spots are available for teams to enter the BBQ competition. Call 270-887-4290 for more information on how to get involved!
