Bob Sykes BBQ & Blues Festival

For the last several years, more than 2,000 people have congregated in DeBardeleben Park for one of the most anticipated events of the summer: the Bob Sykes BBQ & Blues Festival. There, guests can enjoy the summer sun while listening to local and national blues acts, grabbing a plate of Bob Sykes’s famous ribs, or watching kids play on the inflatable slides. Food booths, crafts, and activities draw crowds of festival-goers throughout the day, as do the face-painting booth and cool picnicking spots under the trees. Meanwhile, blues music filters through the open air like frisbees who can’t find their owners. A portion of the festival's proceeds benefit local charities.
