Main Street seeks entries for Grillin’ on the Green

Biloxi Main Street is now seeking entries for the eighth annual Grillin’ On The Green, a daylong festival that takes place Saturday, March 15 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Biloxi’s Town Green.

The event takes place on the same day at the Hibernia Society’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade, which passes by the Town Green at 2 p.m.

“This grilling competition has quickly become the premier event of the spring on the Mississippi Gulf Coast,” said Kay Carter of Main Street. “It has been awarded Southeast Tourism Society Top 20 Winter Event for 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.

“And this year’s event promises to be bigger than ever!” Carter said. “There will be a variety of barbecue for event patrons to choose from. With everything from ribs and brisket to gilled oysters, there will be something for every pallet. Admission is free.”

Those interested in being accepted for craft vendors and grilling competitors should apply now. Entry is on a first-come, first-serve basis. To see an application,
