When it comes to a good barbeque, you know it's all in the sauce baby, creating that crazy delicious flavor. Why not explore that BBQ potential with a food fest? A Great American Barbeque Festival is coming to Tampa this fall, and we're ready to chow.

As you guessed it, this festival is dedicated to everything scrumptiously BBQ. Smokers and grillers from all over the Sunshine State will gather to compete for the title of Best BBQ Sauce, offering up bites for you to indulge in. Pack your stretchy pants and enjoy savory bites from vendors, then cast your vote for the tastiest sauce.

Aside from the bites, you'll also be able to purchase refreshing cold brews. The best part? The festival will be taking over Sunwest Park's beachy coastline, which puts you in the perfect setting for some volleyball and cornhole.

The event will also feature live bands, providing some tunes for you to chill, eat, dance, and game to on the beach.

If you're ready to chow down on some BBQ, the Great American BBQ Fest will take over Sunwest Park on Saturday, Nov. 16 — and tickets are only $5 per person. This would be perfect for a little date night on the cheap or a fun time out with friends.
