The 32nd Annual BBQ Under the Oaks is a fundraising event to help support the Gulf Coast Symphony Orchestra!
This year we will be under new oaks! Thank you to the University of Southern Mississippi for allowing the GCSO to use your beautiful campus for our annual event!
Once in the door, the more than 2,000 guests who attend the event are free to sample any and all of the barbecue specialties at this all-you-can-eat occasion.
Barbecue Under the Oaks has grown tremendously over the years, becoming a much-beloved favorite of barbecue lovers, supporters of the arts, and families across the Gulf Coast and beyond. The event is well-known regionally and was recently awarded one of only eight “Awards of Excellence” presented by the League of American Symphonies Volunteer Council, recognizing Barbecue Under the Oaks as one of the best fundraising events in the nation.
