Porkin’ in the Park this weekend


Friday and Saturday, July 9th and 10th downtown Clarksville will be filled with the smell of slow hickory smoked barbeque and the sounds of live music. Clarksville Kiwanis Club is hosting its third annual Kansas City Barbeque Society’s Porkin in the Park State Championship Contest presented by Bud Light. Teams from all over the eastern United States will be competing for $6,500 in prize money in five categories, chicken, pulled pork bbq, brisket, ribs, and dessert.

Don’t worry; there will be plenty of championship barbeque for sale so come hungry.

The event is free and open to the public. In addition to the food, there’s live music both nights beginning at 6:00pm. Mike Robinson will kick things off Friday followed by Les Kerr and the Bayou Band. Saturday night Southern Comfort will open for The Beagles. There’s a kid’s zone both days for the little ones with inflatables.

The City of Clarksville will be hosting its widely popular Downtown Market in conjunction with the BBQ contest. There will be over 40 vendors selling homegrown produce and homemade goods. The downtown market will be open from 8:00am to 4:00pm Saturday.

So grab the family, call your buddies, facebook your friends, and plan on being in downtown Clarksville next weekend, July 9th and 10th for the 3rd annual Porkin in the Park.
