Gather with local Kentuckians to feast on mouthwatering hickory-smoked meats at Barbecue on the River!  

Celebrating its 23rd year, this annual festival brings together competitive spirit, hunger for barbecue and desire to give back to the community. Over $400,000 is raised for charity, over 40,000 people are fed and more than 80,000 pounds of pork and chicken are cooked! Local vendors, from master grillers to churches and community groups, bring out their best barbecue, drinks and desserts. Besides traditional barbecue, favorites of the festival are BBQ nachos, strawberry shortcakes, cheesecakes on a stick, deep-fried Twinkies and more.
