Old Tyme BBQ is a Colleyville tradition with two-day filled with good eats to raise money for Texas Special Olympics.
The free event invites attendees to the Colleyville Center grounds, 5301 Riverwalk Drive, for a free catfish fry at 6 p.m. Friday, April 28. There will be inflatable fun and live music from two bands. Coolers are allowed. The $25 VIP area returns. VIPs get access to all-you-can-eat food and drink from local vendors.
Saturday, April 29, is for serious eats as both Colleyville cooks and International Barbeque Cookers Association competitors show off their barbecue bravado for the judges. The festivities begin at 11 am. For bystanders, heaping plates of barbecue will be available for purchase. As in previous years, the event may need judges to taste the competitor’s entries.
The annual Kid-Q cook-off returns as junior chefs ages 8-14 grill their best chicken for the judges. At 1 p.m., children, with the help of an adult, will grill chicken breasts for a chance to be declared the best.
