The Hebrew Order of David announces the return of the 2023 Atlanta Kosher BBQ Festival to Brook Run Park (4770 North Peachtree Road) in Dunwoody, Georgia on Sunday, October 22, 2023, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be something for everyone, rain or shine.BBQ ad v.2

Our Festival is centered around a Kosher BBQ Competition where approximately 25 teams compete in KOSHER Brisket, Beef Ribs, Chicken, and Chili categories. We have a large Vendor Village, Children’s activities, Music, Silent Auction, and of course BBQ. Admission is free. BBQ Taste Tickets are $1.25 each and can be bought in advance online or onsite.DSC_2004

Approximately 4,000 BBQ lovers and community supporters attended last year’s Festival. The Atlanta Kosher BBQ Festival is supervised by the Atlanta Kashruth Commission. Because we are fully compliant with their Kosher food handling requirements, all spectrums of the Jewish community can participate, plus, because it is BBQ, the entire Atlanta community joins us as well. This ultimately makes us the most diverse attended food event in Georgia.DSC_2254

Most importantly, you do not have to be Jewish to field a competition team or enjoy our BBQ.  We are looking forward to welcoming 21 competition teams.
