What’s Better than BBQ? A BBQ Competition!

On June 27 & 28, 2015, Washington, DC transforms into BBQ heaven as the Safeway Barbecue Battle takes over Pennsylvania Avenue.

As one of our nation’s largest food and music festivals, this BBQ Battle will be devoted to barbecue competitions, food sampling, cooking demonstrations from pitmasters like Myron Mixon, and live performances from bands like Kelly Bell Band, and many exhibits.

This event has received numerous awards such as being named “One of Five Can’t Miss Summer Festivals in the Country” by CNN, a “Top 10 BBQ Event” by The Travel Channel, “One of America’s Best BBQ Competitions” by Saveur Magazine and “An Event Worth Traveling To” by the American Bus Association, just to name a few.

I can’t wait to try out all the different BBQ options. And, of course, the turkey legs – it’s impossible to have a bad day when you’re munching a turkey leg. Follow along on our Instagram account as we nom on good food this Sunday.

Adult admission is $12 (when purchased ahead of time) and $15 (at the gate). Children 12 and under are free!
