    If we come by boat are there slips available?

    The Port says that there is a courtesy dock located right at the campground boat ramp that can be used. If this is full there are 50+ slips located further back in the cove. From here, you can get a golf cart ride around to the event.

    Spread the word!

    Please clarify event dates. It is listed as 9/19 and 9/20 one place; another indicates 9/13. We are visiting your area and would like to visit, but unclear as to dates and times.

      Nothing set in stone, but the general agenda will be the same as the last 2 years. Cooking demos throughout the day on Saturday, hamburger competition early Saturday afternoon, people’s choice tasting mid afternoon, beer, bands, kids activities all day, etc…

      Sunday will be the turn-ins for the main KCBS competition starting at noon.
