The Yaks Sydney Barbecue Festival 2016
Saturday 30 January 2016
The Domain, Sydney
The Yaks Sydney Barbecue Festival is all about meat, smoke, summer and good times in Sydney. After the massive success of the inaugural Melbourne Barbecue Festival in February, next year The Yaks Barbecue Festival will be rolling in to Sydney as well.
Modelled after the many successful American barbecue festivals staged annually across the United States, The Yaks Sydney Barbecue Festival will be a celebration of meat, local produce and the great Australian tradition of summer barbecues!
Supported by the Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS), the world’s largest organisation of barbecue enthusiasts (with over 20,000 members and 450 barbecue contests sanctioned annually), The Yaks Sydney and Melbourne Barbecue Festivals are the only events sanctioned by the KCBS in the southern hemisphere. The festival will also feature:
- barbecue food stalls including some of Sydney’s finest pitmasters and culinary talent;
- barbecue cooking demonstrations by local and international barbecue experts;
- equipment exhibitors showcasing the latest local and imported barbecue products on the market; and
- live entertainment and DJs.
The Grand Champion of The Yaks Sydney Barbecue Festival cook-off will be invited to represent Australia at internationally renowned barbecue contests in the United States, including the American Royal World Series of Barbecue Invitational, and be in the draw for the prestigious KCBS-run Jack Daniels World Championship Invitational Barbecue.
The KCBS will also be holding barbecue-cooking classes, led by multi-award winning pitmaster Jim Johnson, and KCBS certified barbecue-judging classes, where students will be taught the finer points of what to look for in award-winning competition-style barbecue. The full festival program will be released later this year.
Sydney Barbecue Festival is committed to providing an amazing event at fair pricing.
