If you have a hankering for tangy Memphis ribs or a craving for dry-rubbed, Texas brisket, we have some good news. You don’t have to travel far to get it. This summer, Denver is set to host a barbeque festival of epic proportions — drawing crowds from the east coast down to the southwest. Barbeque chefs from around the nation will bring their A-game, serving up their best BBQ recipes to hungry Coloradans.
When and Where:
The festival kicks off June 14th at 5:00 pm and continues through Sunday at 6:00 pm. Saturday festivities run from 11 am – 8 pm. Broncos Stadium at Mile High will host this highly anticipated Father’s Day weekend event. What better way to celebrate dad than with a big ole pile of smoky barbeque?
Over 18,000 pounds of meat will be smoked throughout the weekend, so bring your appetite and get ready to dig in. Check out events like the Rib Rumble where competitors fight to stuff the most ribs in their mouth in 5-minutes. Or, if you’re interested in the innovation behind the BBQ industry, check out Quick Cuts, where the legendary pit masters will showcase top-secret, showstopping recipes.
Pit masters included in this competition come from a variety of states, but all have one thing in common — their love of barbeque. Each chef brings their unique talents and varied experience to the BBQ stage, curating one-of-a-kind recipes and original creations that honor BBQ history and create new traditions.
It’s Not All About the Meat
Denver bands will play for BBQ lovers all weekend long on The Lawn at Mile High. Sip a cold beer and listen to a variety of sounds from locally loved musicians. Check out the lineup here. Family friendly attractions make this the perfect event for the whole family.
