Great Southern Tailgate Cook-Off Begins August 24, 2012I wanted to remind you of the Third Annual Great Southern Tailgate Cook-Off this weekend at Main Beach, right here on beautiful Amelia Island.

The event to kick off football season begins Friday, August 24 and goes until Saturday, August 25, 2012.

The Little River Band plays Saturday at 7:00 PM.

Main Beach in Fernandina Beach is located at the ocean’s side near N. Fletcher and Atlantic Avenues.

This barbeque competition cook-off, hosted by the Amelia Island Convention and Visitors Bureau, is an all ages event with FREE admission.

Sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society, professional barbeque competition teams will compete for over $20,000 in cash and prizes.

Bring your family, friends, and your appetite to Main Beach Park and enjoy live music by local and regional bands while experiencing the thrill of the competition.

Cheer on your favorite backyard team as they battle against other local teams in their own barbeque competition. Learn a few new barbeque tricks to show off at your own football tailgate parties! After all, nothing goes better with barbeque than football.

Purchase a wristband on Saturday and sample barbeque from participating teams and vote for your favorite in the People’s Choice contest.
