We’re excited to be part of the 2017 Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) competition circuit. KCBS has a huge following and partnering with them brings many people to this festival.
Coming back This Year:
Kid’s Que! On Friday, July 21, we will be having a kid’s bbq contest. Please visit https://arvadafestivals.regfox.com/2017-arvada-on-tap-kids-que-competition for more information and to sign up! Registration opens at 8:00 am on Wednesday Feb. 1st!
New This Year:
You ask and you shall receive! Some of the competitors have agreed to stay after the competition and share their delicious food with you! From 2:00-3:30 and for TWO tickets each, you can travel through the different cooks and try a sample of their food. Each sample is 2 tickets, and can be purchased at the ticket booth near the BBQ area.
What All This BBQ is Being Cooked For:
Professional BBQ teams from Colorado and the region will vie for KCBS national points and a shot at a total of $10,000 in prize money and lots of trophies. They will be cooking all day Friday; cooking ribs, brisket, chicken and pork to be ready for inspection by KCBS certified judges on Saturday. Winners will be announced on Saturday afternoon.
Stroll down the BBQ aisle in the parking lot and ask the professionals for tips, tricks and secrets from the grills.
KCBS, a non-profit organization, is the world’s largest organization of barbeque and grilling enthusiasts with over 19,000 members worldwide. KCBS sanctions over 450 barbeque contests worldwide each year.
