In an effort to help raise funds for a new amphitheater at Bear Cave Park, the Stewartville Area Community Foundation has put on the Bear Cave Backyard BBQ Bash on Septmeber 23rd from 8am-11pm at Bear Cave Park in Stewartville.

They have an amateur BBQ Rib Competition, and the best part is that you can be apart of The People's Choice Pulled Pork Competition at 4pm, where you will get to taste some great homemade BBQ Pulled Pork and decide the winner! Tickets are available for purchase for $10.

If BBQ isn't your thing, they have Food Vendors and a Beer Garden starting up at 11am to 11pm, and you can enjoy the great atmosphere at Bear Cave Park. (There is even Happy Hour Prices from 5-7pm!)

Lost Highway will preform as well! Yeah, live music, what is better? They take the stage at 8pm, while The Reunion Band will open for them from 5-7pm. Make sure you bring your own lawn chair!

Tickets are $8 in advanced and $10 at the gate. You can pick pre-sale tickets at many Stewartville businesses including the DU, Strikers Corner, Fareway, Bremer Bank and First Farmer's bank!

It will sure be a fantastic time with great food, great people and great music!
