Pork in the Park BBQ Festival Returns to Salisbury This Weekend

April 18, 2013

Follow your nose to the Pork in the Park BBQ Festival, presented by Gateway Subaru, this Friday, April 19 – Sunday, April 21 at WinterPlace Park in Salisbury, MD. The festival offers three days of family-friendly entertainment including live music, food, beer and wine, amusement park rides and games and unique craft vendors. Admission is $5 daily for adults, and children under 12 are admitted free.

Featured events at this year’s festival will include a headlining performance from The Marshall Tucker Band on Saturday night beginning at 8:00pm. On Sunday, the festival will introduce Mountaire Farms’ Eastern Shore Wing War. This three-part event will kick off with the People’s Choice Wing Competition, where area restaurants compete in a bracket-style wing competition in which festival-goers will determine who has the best wing. (Brackets will be available at the festival for $10, which include 20 wing tasting tickets.) The event will also include Amateur & Professional Wing Eating Competitions featuring world champion eater Joey Chestnut.

Free parking and shuttle service will be available from the Tri-County Council Building Parking Lot located at 31901 Tri-County Way, opposite of Wor-Wic Community College on Route 50. The shuttle will run all hours of the event and for one hour after the close of the festival.
