Bands Brews & BBQ is taking over Paris Avenue in Port Royal, SC

Paris Avenue in Port Royal, SC will once again be bustling with lots of great food, live music, and plenty of FUN at Bands, Brews & BBQ this February!

Beaufort Memorial Hospital presents the 2023 Bands, Brews & BBQ, bringing two days of food, music, and fun with wings, barbecue, craft beers, and live music on Friday, Feb. 24, and Saturday, Feb. 25 on Paris Avenue in Port Royal.

This official South Carolina Barbecue Association-sanctioned event benefits FRIENDS of Caroline Hospice.

Friday night is the Wing Throw Down from 6 to 9 p.m., where you can sample wing recipes from participating cookers while enjoying live music from Mike Ponder and Steel Rail Express. You’ll find dozens of different wing recipes: some hot, some hotter, some not so hot, some tangy, some barbequed…perfect for everyone’s taste.

Saturday is the BBQ tasting day from 11 AM to 4 PM with cook teams from across the Southeast serving their award-winning butts and competing for a variety of prizes, and some serious bragging rights. It’s quite comparable to a BBQ lover’s paradise. Live Music from Chris Jones, The Bull Grapes & The Chiggers will provide great tunes & entertainment for the day.

Awards will be presented on Saturday by the South Carolina BBQ Association.

One award that is quickly gaining popularity is the Hometown Heroes award. Local teams representing First Responders, Veterans, Education, and Health Care compete for $500, a flag, and bragging rights for the year.

Admission is free. The sampling of wings Friday night and barbecue Saturday will be available by purchasing tickets for $1 each. Beer and wine, water and soft drinks, and food from other vendors will also be available for purchase.
