The annual Backyard BBQ Cook-Off benefits Prevent Child Abuse Henry County.  100% of the proceeds from the event go to the preventative programs designed to ensure every child lives a life free of abuse.

We have the best BBQ in Town! The BBQ chefs from all over Henry County will battle against the average backyard grill master in this family event to determine who makes the BEST BBQ!  The taste size portions let you sample and vote for your favorites.  But that's not all.  Bring your family to enjoy an evening of cooking shows, Paint Ball, televised football games, Face and nail painting, Live Music and more!

Adult Admission (Age 11+):  $20
Child Admission (Age 3-10): $5
Tickets can be purchased in advance (Click Here) or at the door the day of the event.
