2014 International Barbecue Festival – Map Included

Friday and Saturday is Owensboro's famous International Barbecue Festival.

And, this year is even better. The  Riverfront is finished. Smothers Park and the new Owensboro Convention Center and Hampton Inn will be showcased to the max.

Great barbecue aromas and thick, blinding smoke will waft through downtown. And, we will be there. WBKR will be broadcasting from the event on both days. As I look back, my favorite year was 2009. I was joined on the air by Kizzy and on the streets by lovely Mrs. Moon.
