Que on the Yazoo
Nestled along the banks of the Yazoo River in the heart of the MS Delta, Que on the Yazoo is a barbecue cooking competition held the first weekend in May every year. Que on the Yazoo is sanctioned through the Memphis Barbecue Network (MBN) and is a Patio & PRO Competition. Que on the Yazoo also features a steak cook-off, sponsored by the Steak Cook-Off Association (SCA).
Que on the Yazoo is held in historic downtown Greenwood, which celebrates a unique culinary heritage as it is home to Viking Range, countless Delta eateries and The Viking Cooking School. It is a fundraising project of Main Street Greenwood, Inc., a non-profit committed to the promotion and preservation of our downtown. Funds generated from Que on the Yazoo work to ensure that downtown remains a vital destination to live work and play.
We welcome teams and judges from throughout the Southeast to join us in Greenwood the first weekend in May to not only cook and sample great BBQ, but to enjoy all the Delta hospitality that downtown Greenwood offers.
Que on the Yazoo will feature live music and activities for BBQ enthusiasts of all ages throughout the weekend. Everyone is welcome, but please leave your coolers at home! There is no admission fee.
