Enter Ohio County Convention, Tourism and Visitors Commissions inaugural Rising Sun’s Blues & BBQ 2018 event! We are partnering with Rising Sun Main Street and downtown businesses to kick-off our inaugural event. We’re starting small with hopes of growing next year.
Held on Saturday, June 9, 2018 in Historic Downtown Rising Sun, we’re inviting all amateur BBQers to join us in hopes of securing bragging rights and a chance to win a $250 First Place, $200 Second or $150 Third place award.
It will be a day of tantalizing BBQ aromas drifting through Main and Poplar Streets in downtown Rising Sun and live blues music from 2:00 p.m.-9:30 p.m. We’ll have some family fun available too. Bring your lawn chairs!
The event is free and open to the public for spectators, with a minimal $50 entry fee for BBQ participants. This is a rain or shine event.

We hope to see you there!
