Local Talent Showcase Added to BBQ Cook-Off Weekend

Talent Showcase

The City of Forney is excited to announced that in addition to live music and BBQ, this year’s Cook-Off will also feature a ‘Talent Showcase’. The Talent Showcase is open to those who reside in Forney or are currently enrolled in FISD. The Showcase is also open to all ages and welcomes vocal, instrumental, theater, dance, magic or any other variety acts to audition.

“After last year’s BBQ Cook-Off, a number of the responses we received asked for us to include more activities for families”, said Special Events Coordinator Alexa Beasley. “There are so many talented people in our community and we can’t wait to see all of the wonderful acts.”

Those who are wanting to participate in the ‘Talent Showcase’ are asked to submit their application, along with an audition video and $20 application fee by Friday, May 9 at 5 p.m. Once all the audition videos have been reviewed, we will select the top 20 acts who will be performing their five-minute act in front of a live audience and judges. Prizes, including cash winnings will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place overall winners.
