– The smell of barbecue and the sounds of the blues will fill The Square at Union Centre this weekend.

That’s where the Rotary Club of West Chester/Liberty will host its fifth annual Buckeye BBQ Fest fundraiser featuring a Kansas City BBQ Society-sanctioned competition for the third year.

“It’s really exciting to see how it’s grown – both the barbecue and quality of music,” said Sandy Likes, marketing chairwoman for the event and a member of the Rotary’s board. “The barbecue teams are really into their barbecue.”

The festival runs from 5-11 p.m. Friday and from noon to 11 p.m. Saturday at The Square, 9285 Centre Pointe Drive. Admission is $5 for adults; children ages 12 and younger are admitted free.

About 36 teams will be competing for cash, awards and bragging rights – plus an entry into the lottery for admission into the Jack Daniel’s World Champion Invitational Barbecue.

Teams will be competing in several categories including pork ribs, pork shoulder, beef brisket and chicken.

A separate People’s Choice event from 2-4 p.m. Saturday offers a $15 card that allows spectators to sample pulled pork from 12 competitors and vote for their top choice.

There will be non-stop music both days through a partnership between the Rotary Club and the Cincy Blues Society. The society arranged for performances from 10 different bands.

Headlining Friday night is the Stacy Mitchhart Band, which begins its two-hour show at 8:45 p.m. The Noah Wotherspoon Band is Saturday’s main band, beginning its performance at 9 p.m.

About 50 vendors – including 14 selling barbecue – will be at the festival this year selling pies, kettle corn, ice cream and other goodies. There will be a beer garden on site featuring micro-beers and wine. Non-alcoholic beverages will also be sold.

There will be a Kids Zone with face painting, inflatables and a 12-animal, free, petting zoo from noon to 7 p.m. Saturday. Tickets for the inflatables cost $2 each; six for $5; or 15 for $10.
