This annual barbecue competition officially kicks off after the annual Azalea Festival Parade, held early Saturday morning. Enjoy the music and parade floats at the Azalea Festival, and then head over to this chili cook-off for plenty of finger-lickin' fun. Come hungry to this cook-off and sample dishes from each cooking category. Categories include chili, baked beans, beef brisket, chicken, pork spare ribs and hot links. Don't forget to vote for your favorites, and then see which competitor takes the crown of People's Choice winner.

A variety of concessions will be available, as well as an area designed specifically for children. The festival's kids' zone will feature food, inflatables, face painting, clowns, pony rides, camel rides and more. Don't miss the festival's Crowd Pleasin' Showmanship Competition for a wide variety of barbecue-inspired entertainment performed live.
