26th ANNUAL BARBECUE UNDER THE OAKS

March 29

FUNdraising relaxed, family-friendly themed event, held in the shade of dozens of centuries-old oaks. The event features the friendly competitive spirit of about 30 cooking teams ("Ribmeisters") as they try to "out-do" each other to create the most succulent, smoky, fall-off-the bone barbecue delicacies to thrill the crowds, along with a wide array of traditional down home "fixins" and even gourmet accoutrements.

Guests sample the barbecue specialties until full...at this "all-you-can-eat" occasion! In addition to enjoying the barbecue meal, guests enjoy music and checking out the items up for bid in the silent auction tent. Children enjoy as well...as they head towards the play area to have their faces painted, take a ride on a "train", and have fun with the blow-up bouncy house and slide!  Don't miss this Fabulous, FUN, FOOD event!  Proceeds benefit The Gulf Coast Symphony Orchestra and Gulf Coast Symphony Youth Orchestra.

Barbecue Under the Oaks received the "Awards of Excellence" by the League of American Symphonies Volunteer Council, as one of the best fundraising events in the nation!
