First Annual Brandywine Backyard BBQ Festival

Landenberg, PA - On Sunday, April 29, 2018, from 11:00 am until 6:00 pm at the New Garden Township Park, 8938 Gap Newport Pike, Landenberg, PA 19350, the Boy Scouts of America Chester County Council and New Garden Township will host The Brandywine Backyard BBQ Festival, sanctioned and judged by the Kansas City Barbecue Society. This first-ever BBQ competition for our area will help defray the cost of scouting for financially-disadvantaged scouts through the Friends of Scouting Program. Specifically, it assists scouts in the Kennett Consolidated, Unionville-Chadds Ford, Avon Grove, Octorara, Oxford and Cecil County School Districts. It will also make local camp improvements and create awareness of scouting’s benefits.

The BBQ Festival will include great live music, craft and food vendors, children’s activities, skill demonstrations and archery by local Scouts, and a fun BBQ Competition for the public and for children.

Here are the prizes for the Brandywine Backyard Challenge Rib & Chicken Categories (prizes for each category):
Reserve Grand Champion: $1,000 and free entry into next year’s contest.
1st Place: $500
2nd Place: $400
3rd Place: $300
4th Place: $200
5th Place: $100

There will also be a “Scout Chicken Challenge” open to children (you don't have to be a Scout) from the ages of 6 –16 in a contest to see who can cook the best chicken.

If you would like to be an event sponsor to advertise your company, a donor, a BBQ competitor, a food or craft vendor, or simply want to come out for the fun (and an entrance fee of just $3), please check out the website and sign up in advance at
