The Grinch may hate Roast Beast, but he obviously never went to the Chattanooga Market’s annual Beast Feast.
The fifth annual Beast Feast, taking place this Sunday, May 26, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the First Tennessee Pavilion, is an event no red-blooded, meat -eatin’, beer -lovin’ Southerner should miss.
Pit-masters from around the area will duke it out in the Beast Feast Bar-B-Que Contest, judged by People’s Choice and Judge’s Favorites. Participants include Sugar’s Ribs, Choo-Choo BBQ, Lockhart’s Fire & Smoke BBQ, Porker’s BBQ, Lazy Ash BBQ, Haute Cuisine, Cornerstone BBQ, Chatty Town BBQ, and Poppy’s BBQ. Each participant will be serving $1 Bar-B-Que bites as well as full plates (for an additional charge) so that market-goers can decide for themselves which delicious marinated meat reigns supreme.
To sweeten the deal, you can also enjoy live music while attending this event. Local band The Stratoblasters will perform rock n’ roll classics on the EPB stage at 12:30 and 2 p.m. On the outside stage, catch Annabelle’s Curse at 11:30 and 1:30.
