Overview

With the support of Co-founders Susie Coiner & Carol Gault, Beautiful Paducah is proud to announce that BBQ on the River WILL return in 2022!

After 27 years of successfully cooking some of the best BBQ in the country and raising the most money for charity, we feel confident that our organization will maintain the essence of this longstanding tradition - all while breathing new energy & life into one of Paducah's most remarkable annual displays of camaraderie & unity; via delicious food and civic engagement!

 This year's BBQOTR 2022 theme - Smoke on the Water -  will be in honor of BBQ returning to the river Thursday, September 22nd - Saturday, September 24th, and the role we plan for music to play in this year's festival and in the future years to come!

Gather with local Kentuckians to feast on mouthwatering hickory-smoked meats at Barbecue on the River. Visit Beautiful Paducah for a list of participating teams, menus and locations!
