2014 Vendor/Food Application


We are pleased to invite you to judge the annual Smoke on the Mountain in Galax, Virginia, capital of bluegrass music and home to the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains. This year we need MBN and KCBS certified judges as we will host both contests at the same time.

We need judges for ancillary contest on Friday, July 18 and for MBN and KCBS judging Saturday, July 19. All MBN and KCBS rules will be enforced.

RSVP NOW!!! Please complete the form linked below and submit no later than July 8, 2014 for consideration. JUDGES will be on a first come first serve basis. If you accept this invitation and are selected for a judging assignment, you will receive additional information. We look forward to your participation in this year's event. For more information, please contact Shannon Dalton at

We can not guarantee that you will be able to judge in a certain category. We will do our best, but no promises can be made.


Ambassadors are local volunteers who accompany the MBN judges as they go onsite to team locations. They are responsible for keeping time and holding a quiet sign during the judging period. Ambassadors will need to be able to walk quickly between team destinations around town.

We may not be able to accept all volunteers as it will be based on the number of teams entered.
