 The Lake Placid, NY – “I Love Barbecue & Music Festival” (ILBBQF) – July 7-9, 2017

Lake Placid, NY, home of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympic Games, is hosting an international and national level barbecue and grilling competition for the 12th time to benefit the Shipman Youth Center of Lake Placid (SYC).  The competition is sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society (KCBS), the world’s largest organization of barbecue and grilling enthusiasts.

The 12th annual ILBBQF event www.ilbbqf.org, will also include music, children’s activities, arts and crafts, vendor exposition, food demonstrations, Krusher Stunt Team BMX bike and Free Style Motor cross show and celebrity appearances.

We are expecting 40 professional barbecue teams from around the country and abroad to attend. On July 9th, those teams will compete to win the title of the Grand Champion of The Lake Placid, NY – I Love Barbecue Festival.  On July 8th – The 8th annual I Love Barbecue Junior World Championship will be held. Competitors ages 12-17 and 18-24 will square off for the title of the Junior World Barbecue Champion.

The beneficiary of ILBBQF is The Shipman Youth Center (SYC) (www.shipmanyouthcenter.org), a not-for-profit community organization providing support to children and youth ages 10-18. The center was inspired by Thomas Shipman, a designated Lake Placid youth police officer, who died in 1999 and built the center with community donations of money, materials and labor. For the last 17 years, SYC has provided services to over 5,000 different children. Programs include homework time and assistance, community services, recreational services, weekly family-style dinners, dances, and guest speakers. SYC provides a supervised, safe and exciting environment where local children can grow and develop as individuals.
