Next summer BBQ-people will gather to the Nopperla farm in Uusikaupunki, Finland. There you will enjoy tasty food made with fire and smoke, music, local products and many trainings and demonstrations for two days.
The event will feature dishes prepared with fire and smoke in accordance with the BBQ theme. The dishes are prepared in a tasting size, so you can enjoy a variety of BBQ delicacies from different BBQ-artists during the festivals. Even the rain does not interfere with the enjoyment, as a giant tent will be built in the area so you can easily enjoy portions and drinks there in case of a rainfall. Purchases of food portions are made with the “BBQ lantti”, which can be purchased at the entrance and against them you will receive portions from the stalls. The value of one “BBQ lantti” is € 8.
Bands are performing in the tent. The official award ceremonies and performances of the event will take place in the tent.
