BBQ Competition

This is a chance for us to acknowledge the "3 Best BBQ'ers" at Blues, Brews, and Barbecue. Each winner will earn a plaque and the first place winner will have their name added to our City Hall trophy for all of the public to see (kind of like the Stanley Cup). Voting to take place starting Friday at 5:00pm and ends Saturday at 8:00pm. The 3 winners will be announced on stage with Westland Mayor Michael P. Londeau and our BBQ Sponsor.


We would like to thank all the sponsors that help make this event happen.  Without their contributions this event would not be possible.
