KCK Barbecue contest moves to Bonner locale
The Great American Barbecue Festival has announced that Capitol Federal Park at Sandstone in Bonner Springs will be its new location for Memorial Day weekend 2009.
The change comes from festival organizers who have been searching for a new home to satisfy the event’s growth. The venue will give the festival 40 acres of grounds and parking.
This year will also celebrate the festival’s fifth anniversary and will take place May 22 to May 24. The festival expects more than 50,000 attendees and 275 cooking teams to compete for the $73,000 prize money.
