Porkapalooza includes a world-class cooking competition, sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS).
The competition features thousands of dollars in prize money awarded in various categories by type of meat, a chef’s challenge and special young chef events. Porkapalooza is one of four Alberta Cup barbeque competitions taking place this year.
Competition rules and provincial health regulations dictate food service at the festival. Many barbeque teams are not permitted to sell food or provide samples for guests, but they are more than happy to talk their craft. Food and beverage (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) services will be available on-site for guests to satisfy their needs.
The festival is organized by the Porkapalooza BBQ Festival Society, a non-profit organization, with generous financial support from Alberta Pork and other amazing sponsors.
