Local cooks will compete to be BBQ cook-off champion - try them all and vote for your favorites while sampling beer from NC craft brewers!
Nothing complements great Eastern NC BBQ better than craft beer from local breweries! Local cooks will compete to be BBQ cook-off champion - try them all and vote for your favorites while sampling beer from NC craft brewers. Your ticket includes admission to Sylvan Heights Bird Park, plus games, live music, and more!
Save when you order your tickets online in advance - prices increase at the door on the day of the event.
Sylvan Heights Bird Park members receive a 10% discount on tickets for Birds, Brews & BBQ! Please call the park at (252) 826-3186 to receive your member discount.
Bring a dollar (or more)!
Please note that this year, the People's Choice voting will double as a fundraiser for one of Sylvan Heights Bird Park's latest projects! Votes will be cast with dollar bills instead of with paper tickets, and the BBQ cook with the most dollars in their voting box at the end of the night will win the prize. You will need at least one dollar bill to cast your vote for your favorite BBQ, but larger denominations make your vote go further, and raise more funds for Sylvan Heights!
See the birds!
Your event ticket also includes admission to Sylvan Heights Bird Park beginning at 3:00 p.m. on the day of the event. You are welcome to come early, tour the park, then enjoy some great beer and BBQ!
