  1. I’m interested in having a booth at your festival, but I’m not sure if my art would be right for a BBQ contest. Will most crafts and art be BBQ related? I’d appreciate any feedback. You can see my art at NatchezBottleCapArt.com. Thank you.

    1. Thanks for your interest, Brandon. Awesome work! No, the arts & crafts will not necessarily be BBQ related. In the menu at the top (Applications), please download the application for the Juried Arts & Crafts asap to be considered. Spaces are limited. Thanks so much! :)

  2. Terrific work! That is the kind of info that are supposed to be shared around the web. Shame on the seek engines for now not positioning this publish upper! Come on over and discuss with my website . Thank you =)

  3. I think y’all need to have a 5k race either that Friday night or Saturday morning of next years event. Mostly all the festivals around the state does that and I can’t ever remember a 5k race being in Yazoo County.

    1. That’s a great idea, Rod! We’d love to get you on our committee to help coordinate this. Give us a call at 800-381-0662 so we can discuss it after this weekend. Thanks so much! :)

  4. Wouls love to get in and had out some flyers as a group of us will be in Yazoo that day going to the Knutty Knitters yarn shop. It is a one day, day trip and we won’t be there long enough to pay an entry fee. Any suggestions?
    Thank you

    1. If you’re coming in on Friday, admission is $10, but I can’t say for sure if handing out flyers will be an issue. You could check with those at the gate if you like. Admission Saturday is free.

  5. We produce my award winning line of Cajun BBQ sauces here in Lafayette, and we are interested in your Fire & Feast event in September.
    We are in over 40 retail outlets in south Louisiana, Baton Rouge, and New Orleans. We do a thriving internet business through our website, with free shipping. Nearly every weekday, we do store demos, and on weekends set up at hot sauce festivals, etc…This weekend, we will be in two locations at once (quite a trick!) – our well attended Farmer’s Market, and the Louisiana Hot Sauce Festival.
    I spent 14 years working on my sauce recipe, obsessed with creating a superior BBQ sauce. It’s success is a sweet validation of my efforts.
    We have the standard 10′ x 10′ setup, it is attractive and professional.
    We just bought a nice RV that makes it more practical for us to “leave the parish” to promote our sauces.

    Looking forward to hearing from you! May your efforts be blessed!

    1. We appreciate your interest, Russ! However, the only vendors we will have at our 2014 event will be food vendors.

      I’ll be sure to forward your information to our Event Chairperson, though, for future consideration. Thanks so much! :)
