A day filled with over 50 bourbons and whiskeys for you to taste test and BBQ from pitmasters await you and your friends this weekend in Downtown Lake Charles!

Smell the savory aroma of oak and hickory. Taste expert BBQ from leading pitmasters from across the gulf coast, complemented by bourbon and whiskey from around the world. Hear the foot-stomping sounds of top regional bands such as Wayne Toups, Michot's Melody Makers ft. Louis Michot of the Lost Bayou Ramblers, and Mayeux Broussard. See creative artisans and craftsmen at the top of their game. Touch the unique culture of hospitality, cuisine, art, and music of Southwest Louisiana.

Benefiting the United Way of Southwest Louisiana, there will be over fifty bourbons and whiskeys to taste along with BBQ from out-of-this-world pitmasters. Taking place under the beautiful oaks on the Calcasieu Parish Courthouse lawn, it will undoubtedly become one of the year's preeminent social events.
