Join us at our 2nd Annual TV Tailgate and BBQ Cookoff!
Uplifting Athletes is turning Metro Bank Park, a baseball stadium on City Island in Harrisburg, into a Penn State football tailgate extravaganza complete with a BBQ competition and cornhole tournament.
On October 5th the Uplifting Athletes TV Tailgate and BBQ Cook-Off will start at 11am, an hour before the Penn State vs. Indiana game which will be broadcasted on the big screen in right field with a heated sheltered area available to enjoy this Big Ten football game.
This is a rain, snow or shine event with provisions to move all the festivities to the covered walkway behind the grandstand should the weather fail to cooperate.
Tickets are available for $20 each and include all food and non-alcoholic beverages. Beer will be available, but must be purchased. Those who register online by September 27 will receive two free beer tickets. Day of the event registration is welcome, however the two free beer tickets are for early registrants only.
There will also be a cornhole competition starting at kick-off. To register and enter a team of two into the cornhole tournament, add the cornhole tournament option when registering for the TV Tailgate. Participating in the tournament is $10 and prizes for the top performing teams will include Uplifting Athletes and Penn State items.
The barbecue competition will feature several local prominent barbecue restaurants blazing away on their smokers and pits in three categories: pulled pork, pulled chicken and brisket. There will be celebrity judges on hand to sample and determine the winners in each category. And samples will be available for everyone.
