Kentucky State BBQ Festival Smokin’ in September!  Press Release 2nd ever Kentucky State BBQ Festival Danville KY

Danville, KY – Kentucky State BBQ Festival Committee and the Heart of Danville (HOD) are pleased to announce the 2012 event date as September 8 and 9, 2012. The event will be held again in historic Constitution Square Park in Downtown Danville.

Festival coordinators Cindy and Brad Simmons are working on plans to help accommodate the large crowds expected again at this year’s event. “Danville made the celebrity Pitmasters from last year feel so welcome, they are all excited to return. This year will see the event grow and spill into downtown,” said Brad Simmons.

“While this weekend has traditionally been the date for Constitution Square Arts Fest, Heart of Danville officials have agreed that the community will be better served by working together. It gives us a better chance for good weather and longer daylight hours, allowing us to reach a bigger audience. We found the community’s response to the BBQ festival to be exceptional, and feel we can bring a more concentrated volunteer focus to a single event of excellence for downtown,” said HOD Promotion Committee chairwoman Janet Hamner. “Our experience and hard work over the years has allowed Danville to become the region’s ‘Festival and Event Headquarters’. We are so excited to lend support to Brad and Cindy Simmons, bringing even more excitement to Downtown Danville.”

The Heart of Danville will sponsor a minimum of ten events in Downtown Danville in 2012. In addition, the Lawn Chair Theater will host seven movies on Friday nights during the summer months. The Heart of Danville’s mission is to focus downtown development over four concentrated areas: Design, Promotion, Economic Restructuring and Organization.  Press Release 2nd ever Kentucky State BBQ Festival Danville KY

    Will any local BBQ people be able to set up. I was ask about it last year and had calls about it but i told them they would not let anyone local set up. I already have people calling and I would like to be able to tell them if any locals are going to cooking at the festival.

    1. Hi Rick,
      Thanks for the inquiry. It’s not a matter of local cooks vs. others. The Kentucky State BBQ Festival does not include a competition, and a lot of the success of the 2011 Festival sprang from the fact that it was an eating festival and featured celebrity pitmasters, nationally well-known in barbecue competition circles. The committee has decided that we will use the same formula again, inviting back the same pitmasters as last year and adding on a few new celebrity cooks as well. We look forward to bringing the very best pitmasters the barbeque world has to offer to Central Kentucky and letting all attendees sample the food that has made them famous.
      Yours in Q,
      Bob Stovall
      Kentucky State BBQ Festival Committee
