From MD State BBQ Bash Website:

The MD BBQ Bash has been voted the Best Event in Harford County by readers of the Baltimore Sun and attracts an estimated 35,000 attendees over 2 days.

We seek the best Crafters/Exhibitors to serve our patrons and aim for a diverse mix of offerings. Currently, space is available for 45 vendors.

Harford County MD's most anticipated event of the year is the MD State BBQ Bash. Named as Harford County's "Best Event" 2012 2016, the MD State BBQ Bash is a barbecue themed street festival featuring the Maryland State BBQ Championship, with more than 50 competition teams from the Mid-Atlantic area and beyond competing for $12,500 in cash prizes and the chance to compete in the annual Jack Daniel's World Championship Invitational Barbecue in Lynchburg, TN and The American Royal in Kansas City, MO.

In addition, more than 40 amateur teams will compete in the MD State BBQ Bash Tailgate Challenge to see who has the best ribs while competing for cash, prizes, and bragging rights. For more than 10 years, the MD State BBQ Bash has grown to be one of the largest, most fun, and most anticipated events of the year in Downtown Bel Air. Great food, great music, great people, the Maryland State Barbecue Championship and the MD State BBQ Bash Tailgate Challenge, have combined to create a tradition that we hope you will want to be a part of this year and in the years ahead.
