ECF BBQ Competition

  • Grace Episcopal Church 431 Washington Street Southeast Gainesville, GA, 30501 United States (map)

The Episcopal Community Foundation for Middle and North Georgia is excited for the first BBQ Competition in support ECF! Parish teams will cook Boston butts to compete to earn a prize which will be awarded to their parish for outreach! To register your parish in the competition, please visit – and register quickly, we only have space for 10 teams!

• $5,000 – 1st Place
• $2,500 – 2nd Place
• $1,500 – 3rd Place

The competition will take place on Friday, Nov. 10 at Grace Episcopal Church in Gainesville, and will begin after the Friday Annual Council activities have concluded, approximately 4:45 pm. In addition to the competition, a BBQ buffet dinner will be served in the Grace Church parish hall – not only will you have a delicious meal, but you’ll also be able to taste all the BBQ cooked by our competing teams! Top it all off with a live bluegrass band to keep us all entertained! 

Many thanks to Grace Church and the Northeast Georgia convocation for hosting our fun block party. Registration is required for competing teams. Registration is NOT required to attend the event. The registration fee for teams is $100 due by 10/13. To attend the event, there is a suggested donation to ECF of $10 (payable at the door).
