Oinktoberfest has been postponed until next year, Sept 24-26, 2021
It is with a heavy heart that this decision was made. The ongoing virus fight coupled with our consideration of the health and welfare of our team members, judges, public attendees & all of our staff helped us make this difficult decision. We will be back and ready for next year.
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, Sept 24-26, 2021.
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 2021
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. It is a part of Western New York’s biggest family event, the Fall Festival at the Great Pumpkin Farm. Admission Saturday and Sunday is $8/person, including free parking and a variety of activities at the Farm. Discounted tickets are available at all Wegmans. Friday night is FREE admission for Oinktoberfest only. We are sure you will be entertained and your appetites satisfied.
