We’re kicking off the 2017 FWFWF with Texas’ most iconic food. Pit masters from across the state come together to celebrate the festival launch and share their creations with guests. Enjoy barbecue along with some tasty sides from around North Texas as well as the famed Hill Country, and look for lots of great barbecue-worthy beverages as well. Fans will select their favorite dish, which will be crowned “The Best BBQ of the FWFWF.” Guests can also feast their ears on the acoustic stylings of Jolie Holliday and Sonny Burgess during the event.
