9th Annual Bob Sykes Bbq & Blues Festival

Barbecue and Blues are a great combination so start planning for the 9th Annual Bob Sykes Bbq & Blues Festival set for Saturday, April 28, 2018. The event will combine the best of blues music and legendary Bob Sykes Bbq at the beautiful DeBardeleben Park located in historic downtown Bessemer, Alabama

from 12-8pm. Gates open at 11am. You can expect to hear talented award winning local and national blues musicians. Be sure to bring a chair or blanket and set-up your spot for the day.

Since 2010, the festival has been filled with thousands of festival goers from Alabama and out of state guests enjoying a day of blues music and activities for the entire family. Attendees of the festival range from youth to adults. The success of the festival depends on the support of sponsorships from businesses who participate in order to promote their brand and company in front of thousands.

2nd generation owner of Bob Sykes Bar B Q Restaurant Van Sykes says “Each year the festival grows and we couldn’t do it without our sponsors and the support of the community. Patrons come from all over the Southeast.” The festival has been chosen for numerous years as one of the top food festivals in Alabama. There is something to do for the entire family including a large kids corner with activities and games. Children twelve and under are free with a ticketed adult. Besides great music the festival offers a variety of booths including arts and crafts, outdoor exhibits, legendary Bob Sykes Bbq, and a diverse selection of vendors selling tempting offers.

General admission tickets can be purchased at www.bobsykesblues.com or visit Bob Sykes Bar B Q Restaurant. Since 2010, the festival has provided funding for local charities including Children’s of Alabama, Bessemer Education Enhancement Foundation, Clay House, Hands On Birmingham, and Ady’s Army.
