On November 9 and 10, Sydney's beautiful Hawkesbury District will be home to Showdown in the Showground - a whole weekend of family fun and BBQ! The Hawkesbury Showground will be a buzz with families and meat lovers enjoying the city's best smoked bites, beers and live entertainment.

Although eating delicious barbecued meats is a treat in itself, if you're looking to be truly entertained, the 2019 Natural Wood Co. Invitational BBQ Competition - the richest BBQ competition in Australia - is for you. The competition sees 30 of the top Australian barbecue teams along with 20 top teams from around the world grill, roast and smoke, in a bid to win a share in $50,000 in cash, prizes and trophies.

Scott McCoy of BlackBear BBQ said the intention is to offer a family friendly event that people of all ages can enjoy:

"We're all locals to this area and we understand that it can be hard to find entertainment the whole family can enjoy. We wanted to give back to the community and organise this event. We will have kids rides, food stalls, Eating competitions, Motocross Stunt show, IWA wrestling demonstrations, and of course, local community displays, merchandisers and stalls."

Above and beyond the major BBQ contest, the event will be complemented by a State Butchery Challenge, Kid's BBQ Contest and Steak Cooking Competition.

Family passes are available for both days but tickets are limited, secure your spot at the biggest BBQ event for families in Australia now!
