The event is a Kansas City BBQ Society (KCBS) sanctioned competition.

Everyone is invited to bring a non-perishable food item.
Alongside food vendors and competitors, there will also be Franklin’s own Tastin’ Tent. The Cruise-In will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, with the car show all day Saturday. All makes and models are welcome. Registration forms are available at the Franklin Chamber of Commerce. The Buchanan Boys are set to perform onstage at 7 p.m. Friday.
Festival admission will be $5 adults, with children ages 12 and under free. Your festival admission will enter you into the drawing for a Holland Grill valued at $1,200, sponsored by Holland Grills and Macon Appliance.
