Live Music, BBQ Battle, Live & Silent Auctions, and FUN Converge at River Revelry 

2015 River Revelry

River Revelry--A Biodiversity Bash has historically included about as many events as the Upper Coosa has endemic aquatic species (30, for the record). River Revelry 2015 carries on that tradition. This year River Revelry will serve as a "confluence" for multiple events that will converge on Heritage Park for what's sure to be a rip-roaring good time Saturday, Aug. 22, from 6-11 p.m..  Live music all night from Jerry on the Moon, silent and live auctions, boat rides on the river, beer from New Belgium Brewing Co., wine from Barefoot Wines & Bubbly and, of course, some of the best barbecue in the Coosa River Basin and you have the best end-of-summer party on the planet. Scroll down to learn more. Purchase your tickets now online!

Barbecue Battle


The barbecue is the centerpiece of River Revelry as local restaurants and backyard barbecuers compete for the title of "Best Barbecue in the Coosa River Basin." $500 in cash awards will be distributed in restaurant and backyard barbecue divisions. There is no entry fee to compete; just donate your delectable barbecue for River Revelry patrons to enjoy. A panel of certified barbecue judges will designate the winners and patrons will vote on the People's Choice award.

Check back here periodically! Contestants will be added as we receive registration forms and confirmations.
