Sponsorship Oportunities

Being a THF BBQ Championship sponsor is more than having a logo on some printed materials. It’s the opportunity to network with your audience and position yourself at the forefront of your industry.

Sponsors will have numerous opportunities to personally interact with festival and BBQ championship participants for two full days. We don’t want our sponsors to get lost in a crowd, and for that reason, sponsorship opportunities are limited.
