• This is a BBQ Festival, so we all get to eat some great BBQ, right?
It is strictly against the rules for a competing team to serve the public, even for a sample. If you would like to taste some great barbecue, you could become a judge at Fire & Feast OR you could purchase some delicious BBQ from any of our food vendors on Friday night or Saturday.
• Can I buy tickets in advance?
Tickets will only be available at the gate.
Stay tuned for updates!
Friday night the gates will open at 5 pm.
Saturday’s festival will begin at 9 am with lots of activities for children and families, and much more.
Awards ceremony for our MBN, Backyard, First Responders and Ancillary competitions is at 6 pm on Saturday.
• If I have to leave the festival, do I have to pay to get back in?
Admission must be paid for Friday on the day of admission. There are re-entry privileges, so you would not have to pay to re-enter for that day.
• Can I bring my BBQ grill and cooler?
Because of concerns about safety and space, these items are not allowed (unless, of course, you are competing). Not to worry, though. We will have vendors on site to fit every taste and budget.
• Can I bring my pet to Fire & Feast?
For safety reasons, pets are not allowed (except for service animals).
• Is there any seating available at the Yazoo County Fairgrounds?
No. The Yazoo County Fairgrounds is mostly wide-open space. You are welcome to bring your lawn chairs or blankets with you.
And remember, it’s still summer in Mississippi. We do our best to combat the mosquitoes ahead of the event, but it’s not a bad idea to bring your own repellent (BYOR?).
• Is there a place on-site where I can park my RV?
We do not have adequate space on-site for RV parking, however, there are several RV parking sites in Yazoo City and Yazoo County. For a list of those, please visit the Yazoo County Convention & Visitors Bureau website.
• Where can I stay while I am in Yazoo City for Fire & Feast?
The Yazoo County CVB has information on all area hotels on their website at www.visityazoo.org/lodging.
We will be sure to update you here if there are any special rates available at area hotels.
