The seventh Porkapalooza was scheduled to take place on Saturday, May 29 and Sunday, May 30, 2021, featuring 26 Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) teams, but will now be postponed until Saturday, August 14 and Sunday, August 15, 2021.
Gathering restrictions recently introduced by the Government of Alberta have made the competition portion of the event largely impractical at present. This is a regrettable but understandable situation to keep everyone safe.
For now, social media followers can still participate in current and upcoming Facebook and Twitter contests to build excitement as backyard BBQ season approaches, and as we look forward to the new date in August 2021.
Thank you to everyone who has supported Porkapalooza over the past six editions! We hope to see you again soon when it is safe to do so.
