bay state BBQ championship

Partridge hollow campground, monson ma

The inaugural Bay State BBQ Championship will take place Saturday night & Sunday, October 14-15, at Partridge Hollow Campground in Monson, MA -- between Springfield and Sturbridge in south-central MA. Teams will be able to set-up on Saturday (October 14) and compete in an optional Steak Cook-off on Saturday night, followed by a potluck dinner. After competing on Sunday, and the awards ceremony, we'll leave. If teams wish to take additional nights at the campground, they can also do that at a discounted price.

Located off I-90, Partridge Hollow is surrounded by Brimfield State Forest and we should expect great fall foliage during these dates. The campground offers 30 amp electric and water in all locations, a sewage dump station, showers and restrooms.
