The weekend before the official start of Taste of the Teign in 2017 will see the first open BBQ competiton being held here in South Devon. Although there is much to organise we have very positive interest, even from dedicated BBQ teams from other parts of the UK. The event will be held locally, and we are currently in discussion with some potential venues. It is planned to make it a weekend of fun for the whole family, with entertainment, food demonstrations, trade stalls, stuff for the kids, and of course the competition itself. Final categories are yet to be decided, but there will be prizes and above all, a lot of fun. We are keen to hear from any local companies that would like to support the event as a sponsor. There will be advertising opportunities and we will give as much coverage as possible via social media, local tourism partnerships, the press, radio and television media, as I am sure they will all be interested in this first for South Devon.
Please keep an eye open for further updates here on the website, and you can also get these via our Twitter and Facebook account.
