September 20-21, 2019 will be the inaugural Little Apple Classic Car & Barbecue Cook Off. This contest is being put on by the Midwest Dream Car Collection, Visit Manhattan, and a small committee of volunteers. A portion of the proceeds of the contest will benefit the No Stone Unturned Foundation.
What Will the Festival consist of?
This festival will include events for the public on both Friday evening and during the daytime on Saturday. As a first-year event, we are hopeful to have roughly 1,500 attendees each day. The Little Apple Classic Car & Barbecue Cook Off is a sanctioned KCBS (Kansas City BBQ Society) contest and designated as a State BBQ Championship. The winner of the Little Apple Classic Car & Barbecue Cook Off earns a complimentary entry into the 2020 American Royal, World Series of Barbecue Championship.
To be successful, this contest will rely on community and regional partners and sponsors. Sponsorship can be made either through cash sponsorship and/or in-kind sponsorships. The various levels of sponsorship, and the exposure that businesses and individuals get with that sponsorship, are below. All sponsors, regardless of level, can take advantage of:
- Name, logo, and link to their company URL on littleapplebbq.com.
- Contribute to the “goodie bag” given to each competing team and volunteer judge.
- A vendor table set up at the festival to promote your business and/or product(s).
- Logo on the event Facebook page and promotional material.
