Join us for the second annual West County Saturday, May 26 at the Chesterfield Amphitheater, 631 Veterans’ Place Drive (next to the YMCA)
The West County Talent Bash is back and promises to be even better than before!
Last year, the inaugural Talent Bash brought dozens of homegrown talent acts and hundreds of guests to the then-brand-new Chesterfield Amphitheater, located in Chesterfield Central Park. The event will return to the fabulous, open-air venue this Memorial Day weekend, starting at 11 a.m. and concluding with a fireworks show at 9:45 p.m. on Saturday, May 26.
Here are some of the highlights of the 2012 West County Talent Bash…
Schlafly BBQ Championship
11 a.m.-6 p.m.
Area pit-masters will fire up their grills at 11 a.m. for the Schlafly World Pork Steak Championship, sponsored by St. Louis Home Fires in Ballwin. Thirty barbecue teams will compete in three categories:
• Pork steak
• Appetizer paired with a craft beer
• Entree paired with a craft beer
Several of the teams will offer their pork steaks, other barbecued items and various concessions for purchase, so be sure and stop by for a taste while supplies last!
Henry’s Humans, a local, multi-genre cover band, will get the entertainment started with a live and energetic performance from 12-2 p.m. on the amphitheater stage.
Beginning at 2 p.m., KRTS Radio personalities will begin introducing the 60-plus variety acts performed by local talent.
West County Talent Bash participants will compete in four categories: youth, teen, young adult, and adult – in both solo/duo and group acts. Official judges and participating audience members will determine the winners.
West County’s got talent, so you won’t want to miss it!

St. Louis County’s first craft beer festival will offer Talent Bash guests who are 21 and older an opportunity to taste a variety of beers from small, independent brewers.
