The annual Smoke on the Lake Barbecue Festival takes place on Friday, May 7 and Saturday, May 8 at Cauble Park on Lake Acworth. 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 8pm.
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.
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.
