The Lefty’s Brewing Company and the Greenfield Recreation Department will be hosting their seventh annual Riverside Blues, Brews & BBQ Festival at the Franklin County Fairgrounds, 87 Wisdom Way, Greenfield, MA on October 7th, 2017. The festival features a New England Barbecue Society Grilling Contest, a Kansas City Barbeque Society Contest (Official State Championship), as well as Beer, Blues Music, vendors, and fun and exciting competitions. The event is officially sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society with professional BBQ teams competing.
From 2011-2016 we received a Proclamation from the Governor to make our competition an official State Championship Contest. As a State Championship Competition contest, we are a qualifier for two of the biggest BBQ contests in the nation, The Jack Daniel’s and the American Royal.
This contest is eligible for the NEBS Classic and Ken Dakai Cup TOY races
