A spin-off of the Jingle Bell Fun Run (held in December), it adds to Sealy’s reputation as a go-to racing destination. In total, the annual run has contributed more than $31,000 to Sealy’s hometown heroes.
The Barbeque Cook-off
A Sealybration tradition, our barbeque cook-off has a longstanding history of excellence. It’s a party like no other, with delicious food, top-notch judging … and a really, really good time for all. In 2018, we became IBCA-Sanctioned, adding more teams and even bigger cash prizes. Then, in 2019, the sanctioned cookoff had more than 50 teams, qualifying the winner for Annual Jack Dan-iel’s World Championship Invitational Barbecue in historic Lynchburg, Tennessee.
Friday’s Noche de Fiesta
In 2018 we held our first Noche de Fiesta featuring Regional Mexican music, and we received rave reviews. (Regional Mexican is the most popular Latin music genre in the country and includes banda and norteño.) With a diverse demographic making up Austin County, including music that represented all of our community just made sense. Sealybration plans an even bigger event for 2021!
