Chelsea, Michigan’s annual Smoke & Ale Fall Festival and BBQ Cook-off Contest will take place Oct. 13-14, 2017 at the Chelsea Fairgrounds. The BBQ Contest is for professional, semi-professionals, and foodies alike. The Cornhole Classic is a great spectator event for all attendees, and fabulous fun for the participants – and the winners receive a cash prize! The Beer Festival features local Michigan ales that are sure to please the finest craft beer palates! Live music sets the tone for this casual and upbeat fall event.
They are expecting over 2,000 people in this year, including BBQ tournament teams, cornhole tournament competitors, live bands, breweries, and meat and beer enthusiasts. There is also a kids area with games and activities for children and multiple bounce houses. Look forward to an even bigger, better, smokier, ale-y-er, cornholier festival this year!
