The Gallia County BBQ Festival will be hosting our annual BBQ Competition in the Gallipolis City Park on Saturday, September 9 from Noon to 3:00 pm. BBQ and drinks will be available for purchase.

We invite community organizations, local businesses, & vendors to set up in our community section for promoting, giveaways, fundraising, etc. Items and services are allowed to be sold but, any food or drink sales are prohibited. The Festival is a fundraiser for the Gallia County CVB and any food or drink sales would be a conflict.

Registered groups will be assigned a spot in the community section of the festival. Set-up begins at 10:00 am the morning of the Festival. 

The deadline to register your organization is August 25th at 5:00pm. Call our office at 740-446-6882 or email at info@visitgallia.com. We will be happy to take your registration over the phone.
