Tilford's Q Krew was a big hit at last year's festival. From the pulled pork sandwiches which would melt in your mouth, to the award winning ribs, and more. We had so many requests for Tilford's Q Krew to come back to the festival, we had to invite them back. They've long been favorites at Paducah, KY's BBQ on the River and over the year's have rows and rows of trophies to show for it!
At last year's Kenlake Hot August Blues Festival, we got several requests to bring back a food vendor from past festivals, and after tracking them down, we're happy so say Orleans Catering of Lafayette, Louisiana is coming back, bringing their "real deal" cajun favorites,such as crawfish mac n cheese, fried pork chops, shrimp baskets, red beans and rice and chicken wings!
Following last year's festival, several of you told us you wanted "healthier" options for food so we're bringing in Uncle Ted's Just Dang Good Food, featuring veggie and vegan options, as well as grilled chicken, in addition to other fare, including burgers and other sandwiches! They've got something for everyone and it's all delicious!
No matter how hot the Blues and the weather get, you can cool off with the coldest ice cream ever made: Dippin' Dots! The favorite ice cream at Major League Baseball Ballparks and Theme Parks around the country will also be available once again at this year's Kenlake Hot August Blues Festival!
Cowboy Kettle Korn brings festival favorites with their kettle korn, and also lemon shake ups!
At this year's Kenlake Hot August Blues Festival, bring your appetite for great food in addition to your appetite for great Blues!
There will NOT be a beer garden at this year's festival. Instead, patrons will be allowed to bring their own coolers with a one time, $15 fee per cooler brought into the amphitheater area. The proceeds from the fee will be shared with the Marshall County Rescue Squad, which received no government funding and relies totally on donations and fundraisers for it's funding. The one time fee covers both Friday and Saturday at the amphitheater.
