2016 Shelby County Shindig - Music Line Up Announced
It's that time of year again! The streets of downtown Columbiana become flooded with the delicious smells of the Shelby County Shindig BBQ Cookoff and music festival. This annual event has been a great way to bring the community together while showcasing some of the best barbeque and music around!
Not only is this a great family friendly event but proceeds from the Shindig benefit the Shelby County Arts Council and the South Shelby Chamber of Commerce. Funds help keep great programs like ArtAbilities and “Writing Our Stories” alive. These classes and programs benefit everyone from special needs children, teens at the Juvenile Detention Center, and many other area students. The Shelby County Arts Council is committed to reaching out to kids of all ages and creating a positive community effect through art and creativity.
The Shindig also supports the efforts of the South Shelby Chamber of Commerce and its mission to assisting businesses with growth, education, and marketing. Funds also support the South Shelby Chamber of Commerce Scholarship Fund which awards three $1000 scholarships to graduating seniors in South Shelby County.
The Shindig fun begins on Saturday, July 16th from 1pm-7pm. Tickets for barbeque tasting are $10 each and include a tasting from all participating barbeque teams ($5/Gate Entry/No BBQ).. Check out some delicious treats from local restaurants like Frios Pops, Bernies on Main, and Champy's Chicken and Tamales. The music line-up is sponsored by the Magic City Blues Society. The line-up includes the Sassy Brown duo, Janelle Frost duo, Elijah Butler duo, 2 Blu and the Lucky Stiffs, and Davis Coen. This great family even is sponsored by Lowe/Weichart Realty, DeLoach CPA, APH Radio, and many other great local and regional sponors.
