|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on June 12, 2021 at 12:00 am

Join us for the inaugural Coalfields Cookoff.  A one of a kind event, hosted by the City of Welch, WV, on Friday, June 11th (BBQ set up), and public events are Saturday, June 12, 2021, in wonderful McDowell County, WV.

Come and experience what wild and wonderful West Virginia is all about! BBQ competitions, the best music in the mountains, and an ATV festival, all rolled into one!

BBQ Cook Teams will compete for almost $5000 in prize money and the WV State BBQ Championship title.

Attendees can sink their teeth into some of the best BBQ from vendors throughout the region or participate in some taste testing from competitors. For grownups, the Beer Garden will be the perfect complement to a thick, juicy bite of brisket. (Must be 21 and have ID).

Bring your ATV and enjoy the Hatfield-McCoy Trail or sit back in your favorite lawn chair or blanket and enjoy the mountain air, laced with the smell of BBQ and the music of Appalachia’s favorite musicians.

WV Coalfields Cookoff offers more than just great food and good music.  Regional artisans will sell handmade crafts and the Kids Korner will have fun activities for kids of all ages. Welch has something for everyone!
