Minnesota in Mayaugust (Minnesota in May)

08/28/2020 - 08/29/2020


Location: Isanti County Fairgrounds, Cambridge, MN

MiM will be held August 29th, 2020!

*Update 8/9/20*
Because of judging cancellations, mainly due to Covid concerns, we are placing a team cap of 48 for pro and 36 for backyard on MN in Mayaugust. This is to balance team count to the confirmed KCBS judge pool to ensure the highest standard of judging possible. A wait list will be in place once the cap has been reached, and teams from the wait list will be contacted when the amount of confirmed judges increases.  If you know of judges who may be interested in taking part we encourage you to steer them to http://mnbbqsociety.com/2020-minnesota-in-may-judge-application/ to get signed up.
