The Backyard BBQ

August 17, 2019 12:00 pm @ 12:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Land-Grant is inviting its neighbors over to hang, and everyone is invited. This Saturday (August 17)—for the second straight summer—Land-Grant Brewing Company is hosting the Backyard BBQ, a celebration of the Franklinton Neighborhood’s creativity, ingenuity, and energy.

Guests to the event can expect an action-packed afternoon featuring live band karaoke with Dirty Money, chainsaw sculpture carving by Lundberg Industrial Arts, flamethrower picture frames with Columbus Idea Foundry, a dunk tank, food eating contests presented by Strongwater, spin art from Glass Axis, historic artifacts from National Veterans Memorial and Museum, as well as presentations from Roy G Biv Gallery, Red Herring Productions, The Art of Yoga, River & Rich, and Bark!

From 1-5pm, aspiring pop stars can sign up to sing their favorite song on a predetermined set-list with a donation to Franklinton Station. The set will be posted on social media and singers are encouraged to arrive early to claim their tune.

Returning for its second year is the wildly popular dunk tank in which guests can soak a lineup of community figures with proceeds benefitting .WAV (formerly the Dick & Jane Project). Show up to dunk Land-Grant president, Adam Benner, and he promises to match all donations during his stint in the tank.

BBQ-friendly eats will be available from Land-Grant’s mainstay food truck, Ray Ray’s Hog Pit as well as Chick N Coop and the Cheesy Truck.

Following karaoke, The Deeptones and JG & The Capetillo Trio will keep feet moving on the Beer Garden stage.

The Backyard BBQ is this Saturday, August 14 from noon-10pm and is free and open to the public.
