Barbeque Is on The Menu in Laurens, South Carolina

Do you like good Barbeque? Then this is an event you do not want to miss! The 19th edition of Squealin’ on the Square  will be staged on October 4-5, 2019. This is an event that needs to be on your fall calendar.

Squealin’ on the Square in downtown Laurens, SC, will celebrate their 19th year of bringing family fun and delicious BBQ to the historic downtown square. The first weekend of October each year sees the downtown square come alive with live music, arts & crafts, food and especially BBQ. The two-day event kicks off on Friday and runs through 8pm on Saturday.

As a KCBS sanctioned event, Squealin’ on the Square is excited to participate in the Palmetto BBQ Series SC BBQ Championship. This competition series will award the best BBQ Competitor in SC who has the highest cumulative points for participating in at least 4 of the 6 KCBS sanctioned events in SC. Squealin’ on the Square is the next to last KCBS event of the year for SC. Therefore, a large number of teams are expected for this BBQ competition.

Squealin’ on the Square is presented by the non-profit, Main Street Laurens, as a way of raising funds to assist in their efforts to revitalize the Historic Downtown District. All proceeds from the event go back into the organization to help with various projects throughout the year.

Make plans to attend this fun and entertaining event. You will also see a very historic downtown square with lots of history and heritage. Laurens is said to have been a place that President Andrew Johnson once had a tailor’s shop.
