9th Annual


Competition & Open House



As a small business owner, I always like to do what I can to help support local small business in and around the Mid-Atlantic. I’m not always able to do much, but one of the things I can do is offer free marketing to local vendors who want to come to our Open House and BBQ Competition on the first weekend in April each year! This is the 8th Year for our Event and we have averaged between 2,000 and 3,000 attendees every year for the past few years. THE IRONMAN is a Governor proclaimed, KCBS Sanctioned Professional PA State Championship BBQ Competition that we hold at our store in Greencastle, PA. We have 60 teams come in from around the country and Canada to compete to be the best BBQ in the state and qualify for several National BBQ Competitions – exactly like the BBQ competitions you have seen on TV!


The 2019 event takes place on Saturday, April 6th and we are working to make it even bigger this year. As in years past, we are offering a FREE 10x10 area for local businesses to set up and sell stuff. If you need an area larger than that, please let us know as we might be able to accommodate that. We are looking for a variety of stuff – handmade goods – pottery, iron forging, etc.; food items – jams, jellies, smoked cheeses, jerky, honey, etc.; or anything that might be cool and interesting for Attendees to check out.


We also are raising money for the Relay for Life of Greencastle, PA. So while you don’t have to, it would be nice to and we encourage you to donate an item to them for a raffle or give them some sort of cash donation for the cause!


Although you can bring your stuff in and set up on Friday evening, we won’t have security, so we recommend setting up on Saturday morning between 6a-9a. Vehicles and trailers have to be parked and out of the way by 9a and you should be set up no later than 9:30a.


Tear down is at 4p.


Please fill out this Vendor Form and get it back to us as soon as possible. We would also like a link to your website or Facebook page and a hi-res copy of your logo. We reserve the right to deny vendor spots to avoid duplication or if we feel that your booth will not be a good fit for our Event. Booths are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
