Rumbling tummies will be satisfied at the Eatons Hill Hotel with its first ever Meat Up BBQ Festival due to be held in August this year.
Carnivores will be in meat-loving heaven, with the festival sizzling all your favourite barbeque meats. The vendors on the day will include Blue Grass, Barbecue Mafia, and Smokin Butts & Racks, and with live music, beer, bourbon, and a bonfire, it’s set to be a night of smoky goodness.
Eatons Hill Hotel marketing coordinator Jacinta Cahill said the festival would showcase some of Brisbane’s best talent and the hotel expected around 4000 guests for the event.
“We are thrilled to be hosting Eatons Hill Hotel’s first ever barbecue festival,” Jacinta said. “We are so excited to be adding another great festival to our diverse list of events and look forward to putting on a flamin’ fantastic day for all.”
Jacinta said guests could expect to have a light-hearted and fun day, eat a lot, and if they were game enough, compete in one of the eating competitions. One of the many eating competitions would include hot wings – but there were many milder meat-eating competitions to also take part in for the faint of heart.
“Guests can expect to leave the event already counting down the days until the next Meat Up festival,” Jacinta said.
“Beer, bourbon and barbecued meats in the one place with live music and eating competitions. Not to mention, it’s the perfect winter night – keeping cosy with our giant bonfire. Who wouldn’t want to come?”
While the meat is cooking and the fire is crackling outside, the Grand Ballroom will also be set up to host fun and interactive activities and games for guests.
Tickets are on sale now and at just $15 entry, they will fly out the door. The festival is an over-18 event, so leave the kiddies at home and indulge in a rib or three in peace.
“Loose clothing is encouraged so that attendees can fill their bellies with lots of barbecued meats from the scrumptious food vendors that will be there on the day,” Jacinta said.
