About the event

The 10th Annual Doc Holliday Festival and BBQ Competition is returning to Griffin City Park in September - the weekend after Labor Day, promising entertainment for the whole family. This exciting event is not only free to attend, but also offers a glimpse into the past and present with a variety of activities and shows. One of the highlights of the festival is the re-enactment group Aces and Eights, who will be performing three shows in the park depicting the famous shootout at the OK Corral. These shows, which run for approximately 30 minutes each, tell the story of the life of John Henry "Doc" Holliday, who was born in Griffin and had a dentistry practice on Solomon Street, making it a must-watch for history enthusiasts and fans of the Wild West. Another major draw of the weekend is the barbecue competition, sanctioned by the Georgia Barbecue Association, which is expected to have around 30+ professional teams participating. The barbecue teams will be set up in the ball field inside Griffin City Park, and the general public will have the opportunity to purchase a sampler platter from twelve of the teams, known as the People's Choice. Not only will guests get to enjoy delicious barbecue, but they will also have the chance to vote for their favorite team, with a prize awarded to the winning team. The Doc Holliday Festival is made possible through the collaborative efforts of various partners, including Eagle's Way Church, the Griffin Downtown Council, the Chamber of Commerce, City of Griffin, Spalding County, Aces and Eights and the Spalding Collaborative. A portion of the profits from the event will be donated to the Spalding Collaborative for Families and Children, making it not just a fun event, but also a way to support the local community. With its combination of entertainment, delicious barbecue, and community support, the annual Doc Holliday Festival and BBQ Competition is a must-attend event for all ages. Don't miss out on this exciting day of festivities in Griffin City Park in September !
