The annual Boonville Square Flair will return Saturday, October 7th, and you have the chance to prove that you make the best BBQ in the Evansville area.

There is so much to see and do on the Square in Boonville this fall! In years past they have had plenty of things to keep the family entertained like bounce houses, food trucks, face painting, pumpkin painting, music, food contests, and games. The 2023 Boonville Square Flair will bring back more of the fun from years past too.

One of my favorite events, which I think my friends and I should get in on this year is the BBQ Contest. if you think you make the best BBQ in the Evansville area, this is your chance to put it to the test. Typically, there are three different categories judged: pork butts, pork ribs, and chicken. Boonville Merchants Association has awarded cash prizes and trophies to the winners of each category. The money raised from the BBQ contest at Square Flair went towards scholarships for high school seniors.
