2024 Smoke on the Lake BBQ Festival

The annual Smoke on the Lake Barbecue Festival takes place each year on Mother’s Day weekend at Logan Farm Park. The festival features a Friday night Lord of the Wings competition.   Each participating BBQ team prepares their own special flavor of chicken wings and you get to be the judge at 6pm.   The competition is followed by a concert under the stars starting at 8 pm.  Two beer tents are on site and additional food options are also available from local restaurants and food vendors.

On Saturday, BBQ teams from all over the Southeast will compete in professional and amateur divisions to see who will take home the title  this year.  The  Saturday event will feature another people’s choice competition where you get to be the judge, and taste different pork entries from all of the participating cook teams.

Great weather, great music, great BBQ and Cold Beer. Smoke on the Lake brings 20+ Amateur Backyard BBQ Teams that work very hard to cook Wings on Friday night and Pork on Saturday for a hungry crowd. 

The event is hosted by the Rotary Club of North Cobb and the City of Acworth.    All proceeds will be distributed amongst several local charities, so come out and help make a difference in your community.

  3. The Mustangs band was great! The Lord of the Wings event was pathetic. Not enough people cooking wings, too expensive for only getting one wing to taste at most booths.
    The most disappointing thing about this years event, specifically Friday night, there were not enough “pay for” food vendors. One Food vendor and only one dessert vendor to feed several thousand people. Sad! I’ll think twice before I come back next year.
