Beer. BBQ. Bands.
If you live for the smokey stuff, as most of us do in Texas, don’t miss this chance to see and taste some of the best in the state. At BBQ Austin cities from all over Texas send their Champion BBQ Teams to compete in the Invitational Division for the title of “State of Texas BBQ Grand Champion.” Additionally, all teams compete for the title and purse of “BBQ Austin Grand Champion.”
Of course the best part is that while competing in several contests, all teams provide BBQ to the public for sampling. Many teams will also be setting up elaborate spaces to welcome folks to join in on the fun. The whole family will enjoy the competition along with live music and carnival rides.
