September 21 - 23, 2018
Oinktoberfest has continuous music all three days, plenty of BBQ vending teams, 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 us at the Great Pumpkin Farm for Oinktoberfest, Sept. 22-24, 2017.
Heart of Texas is the theme for 2017. If someone were asked to list the top 3 or 4 states that are best known for their BBQ, Texas would probably be on all of them. From the early German and Czech butchers that smoked the leftovers to today’s hip, new BBQ joints getting national accolades and recognition, Texas is worthy of declaring itself the BBQ capital. With the cattle population estimated to be near 16 million head, brisket is clearly King, but smoked sausage that evolved from those early settlers could easily be crowned Queen. So please join us for this celebration of Texas BBQ.
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 $7/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.
