This event will feature BBQ legends such as Myron Mixon, Tuffy Stone, and Moe Cason from "BBQ Pit Masters Show." These chefs will be competing with others in cooking contests such as best BBQ sauce, best ribs, and best pork.

Make sure to come hungry because there will be tons of food and even a tent for free samples. The tent will be open on Saturday and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m., so plan accordingly! After you try all your samples, you can vote for the top military chefs from the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard.

The event will also feature 30 bands performing on three separate stages. You can rock out with the Plain White T's, Back Yard Band, See-I, and others. If you are still not full after all the samples and food vendors, you can even enter a hot dog eating contest.
