The Grind Abuja Grill And Bbq Festival


On Independence Day, Thursday 1st October 2015, Abuja witnessed the debut of it’s first-ever Grill & BBQ festival, titled, The Abuja Grill and Bbq Festival, a follow up from the Lagos Grill & Bbq festival held during the Easter period in Lagos.

The event took place at the prestigious Harrow Golf Park, Abuja and was flavored by Jack Daniels and Refreshed by Pepsi The Festival offered the people of Abuja the chance to sample different selections of meats and delicacies, both local and from around the globe.

The festival featured the distinctive barbecue styles of many different food emporiums, including the likes of The Grind Grill, Jalapenos Grill, Grill In and Out, The Grill Party, Barkano Grill, Tree House Grill, La Rouge Chef, Rebhan Grills, Seun B, Shirleys, Franks Prime Hotdog, Japhar Grill etc.

Given the almost nuclear nature of much of the grub on offer, refreshment was at hand in the form of several international drinks and sprits to keep the thirsts of bbq lovers quenched. Some of the brands involved included Pepsi, Jackdaniels, Castle milk stout and Redds.

In light of being the Festival’s birth onto the Abuja scene, the turnout was impressive with tickets for the event completely sold out. Given the overall costs of running the festival, a voucher system was deployed to make things viable.

There were media personalities and A-list celebrities. Music headliners included Wande coal, Niniola, Largess, the Guest DJ, Chocolate city DJ Lambo and the entertainment host EmmaohmyGod.
The event was a laid-back, summer-type event, with the ooze of crisp barbecue in the air, there were side attractions like Game trucks, recreation games, funfair for kids, a Master Class by Chef Fregz, and many more
The chief coordinator of the event, Grill Master Francis Ebie said “A huge thanks to everyone for coming to the first-ever Grill and bbq Festival in Abuja, We hope you had a great time? Next year promises to be bigger and better
