The 3rd Annual Go Oak Cliff Blues Bandits & BBQ will take place October 26-27 in North Oak Cliff, blocks from the Bishop Arts District at the future site of the Davis Street Market development at 715 W Davis St.

The event will feature 23 BBQ teams competing in five categories, a beer garden featuring beer from Four Corners Brewery, a kids' area with bounce house, a wood-fire cooking demonstration from Chef Tim Byres, and lots of live music.

To sample all of the competition BBQ, as well as vote on the 2012 BBQ People’s Choice Award, you must purchase your BBQ tasting wrist band in advance. To buy tickets, click here.

BBQ tasting will take place between 2 and 4 pm on Saturday October 27. If you buy a tasting wristband, then you’ll want to be onsite during the entire tasting portion of the event, from 2 to 4 pm, as the teams will be sampling their brisket, pulled pork, ribs, chicken and sausage at different times during the two-hour window or until they sell out.

Once the wristbands are sold out, there be no more available. Food trucks and other food vendors on site will sell other treats for cash.
