September 23 – 25
Celebrating the continuing ascent of BBQ in our ever changing food scene we have chosen this year’s theme to be: East Meats West or how Asian inspired BBQ is now becoming part of BBQ’s ever growing popularity. From Korean Bulgogi to Chinese Char Siu Pork to Japanese Yakitori, the influence of Asian inspired spices and techniques are now entering the mainstream. Although much of Eastern styled BBQ is actually grilling, the fusion with our more traditional slow smoked meats is being demonstrated by the proliferation of Asian inspired rubs, sauces, recipes and restaurants featuring Asian inspired 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.
