Oinktoberfest has been rescheduled to next year, Aug 5-7, 2022
Due to a number of uncertainties related to NY State rules regarding large gatherings and other mitigating factors, Oinktoberfest has been rescheduled until the summer of 2022. The date change from the fall to the summer should also make for better weather certainty. We are far less likely to have sleet and temperatures at night should be much more tolerable.
As usual, there will be music all three days with an emphasis on the Blues, plenty of BBQ vendors, a KCBS sanctioned Competition Saturday, a Whole Hog Competition, Outdoor Cooking Contest and the Rib Oink-Off on Sunday and an Awards Ceremony following the contests both days. So plan on coming out to celebrate the exciting world of BBQ with Memphis Style at the Great Pumpkin Farm for Oinktoberfest, Aug 5-7, 2022.
What immediately comes to mind when you see the words, Memphis style? Most likely bourbon, BBQ and blues. Memphis is famous for plenty of things but BBQ and the Blues epitomizes what that city is about. If we break it down, Memphis is one of the four major regional areas of BBQ in this country, the other three being Carolina, Kansas City and Texas. What better way to recognize that distinction but to have that Memphis Style as our theme for Oinktoberfest.
In Memphis, barbecued pork is King, ribs and pulled pork shoulder, dry rubbed and slow smoked with wood. Sauce is usually served on the side. Common sides are coleslaw, cornbread, baked beans, greens, mac and cheese. BBQ nachos and pizza are also part of the BBQ cuisine.
Located in Clarence, NY, a suburb of Buffalo, Oinktoberfest is the longest continuously running BBQ competition in NY and has grown and prospered to become one of WNY’s premiere events.There will be an admission fee for Saturday and Sunday and free admission Friday night. All dates include free parking. We are sure you will be entertained and your appetites satisfied.
