With flood waters rising into Tom Lee Park, Memphis in May officials have made the decision to move the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest to Tiger Lane (aka, the fairgrounds) in Midtown.
Other than the change of venue, things will remain the same – the festival will still happen from Thursday, May 12th through Saturday, May 14th. There will still be teams and booths. There will still be lots of barbecue and the Miss Piggy Idol contest will go on.
