This is the fifth year for the popular People’s Choice Tasting Contest, which allows event attendees to sample and vote for the best pulled pork barbeque from the competition cook teams. A fun element to this year’s event will be two lines – a Gold Line and a Blue Line. Patrons choose the line they want to sample from when purchasing their tickets. Sample the que, vote for your favorite, and pull for your team to win! The winner of the People’s Choice Tasting Contest will be announced at 4pm on the Back Porch stage.

Tickets to this event are $10 each and those who purchase will be able to sample savory pulled pork from participating championship cook teams and vote for their favorite.

Tickets may be purchased at the festival or in advance at the Sevierville Chamber of Commerce office located at 110 Gary Wade Blvd. For additional information call Phil Word at 865-453-6411 or email Please remember that there are only a limited number of tickets available so purchasing early is always a good idea.
