Looking Gooood!

Kosher BBQ Festivals are about bringing the local community together and meeting new friends. But mostly it is about the food, and it is going to be amazing! We bring back the incredible beef ribs everyone enjoyed last year!

Musical Act:
North to Nashville

North to Nashville, to put it simply is the best local, modern, and energetic country band in Central Ohio. Formed in March of 2018, N2N is already gaining significant traction throughout the Columbus area and bringing over a combined, 50 years worth of experience to the stage. While each the band’s members come from their different musical background, one thing is clear – their passion for playing great music.
The band consists of Evan Blankenship as the lead vocalist, Brian Turnbull on lead guitar, Ryan Tuhy on bass guitar, and Chris Nance on drums. North to Nashville has opened for country music greats like David Lee Murphy, Rodney Atkins, Jake Owen, Lee Brice, Gary Levox (Rascal Flatts) George Strait, Blake Shelton, Luke Combs, and Cole Swindell.
With their major influences coming from Chris Stapleton, Eric Church, Jason Aldean, Johnny Cash, Brooks and Dunn, and more, North to Nashville vows to leave a lasting impression for this year’s BBQ!

Until 2019's BBQ
Buckeye Kosher’s BBQ Festival has been a phenomenal success since its inaugural event in 2015.

Last year (4th Annual) brought a 60% higher sponsorship and volunteer participation with approximately 110 volunteers and over 40 sponsors. The event continues to attract a strong audience of close to 1,200 festival attendees.

We are planning for a bigger event this year with the help of JewishColumbus as our presenting sponsor. The festival will be grilling up some fun on Sunday, September 8, 2019 at Capital University front lawn on Main Street.

The venue and set-up are perfect since it is walking distance for most of the community in Bexley.
