How can I purchase advance tickets?

Advance tickets can be purchased online, by phone. For details about the different events and tickets, please visit the Tickets page here.

How much is admission for Kids?

Kids 12 and under will receive FREE admission when accompanied by a paid adult. All food and BBQ samples on site are cash sales only.

How should I dress?

COME COMFORTABLE! Casual dress is best for the BBQ Fest. All that BBQ tasting is both delicious and messy, so just pretend like it's our own backyard throw down. Come ready to eat, dance, and meet new friends. Comfortable shoes a must. The event is outdoors so dress weather appropriate.

Can I try the competition BBQ?

Yes, we do have an opportunity to try the competition BBQ from participating teams.
