Butts on Broadway

Butts To Broadway is Hopewell’s only pork butt barbecue cooking competition! Competitors will cook their best pork butts for a chance to take home a judges award or be crowned People’s Choice in 2019! The competition will be divided into amateur and professional divisions. The general public is invited to attend the event to enjoy BBQ sampling, live music, cold drinks, and fun for all ages. To sample BBQ, a $10 taster ticket must be purchased at the event (cash and cards accepted). To simply enjoy the sites, sounds, and ambiance of historic downtown Hopewell, there is no fee. Beer sales will only be permitted to individuals ages 21 and above with a valid ID. This event is open to all ages.
