The Hi-Fi Hillbillies will be performing on Saturday, April 28 during the
Hot Pickin' Finger Lickin' BBB Cookoff and Band Fest.
Spring has already started heating up and the music and barbecue aren’t far behind.
Live music and tasty barbecue are on tap for Sallisaw Main Street’s annual Hot Pickin’ Finger Lickin’ BBQ Cookoff and Band Fest coming at the end of the month. The weekend of April 27 and 28 will see live music, a free family fun zone and a pop-up market in downtown Sallisaw.
Sallisaw Main Street board member Jaime Henson said Friday’s events kick off at 7 p.m. and include live performances by Haulin’ Oats, an acoustic band from Poteau, and 6’ Under, another local band. The Sallisaw Main Street food truck will have Indian tacos for sale, along with other “tasty treats,” according to Henson.
“All of our contest participants will be preparing their barbecue also,” she said, adding there will be about 10 teams competing in the barbecue contest.
On Saturday morning, activities begin at 10 a.m., featuring live music from the Hi-Fi Hillbillies and Katelyn Myers. A pop-up market will entice shoppers, while inflatables will keep the youngsters busy. There will also be a free family fun zone.
Henson said taster kits go on sale at 11 a.m. Saturday, and are only $7 each.
“For $7, you definitely get your money’s worth as far as a good lunch,” Henson said. “So you can sample all kinds of different barbecue. Each contest participant is encouraged to get creative and add different sides if they like. It’s not just barbecue; there will be extra sides to go along with it.”
Proceeds from the event will be used by Sallisaw Main Street to continue to restore and beautify the downtown district.
