The competition starts on Friday at 1pm and awards for various categories will be presented Friday evening and Saturday afternoon in Bicentennial Park located at 999 Colorado Street.
“Indulge” in fun festival food from our returning favorite food truckies. From Funnel Cakes and Shaved Ice to delicious Barbecue Favorites, washed down with an ice cold Bud Light from the beer tent or a refreshing Margarita.

The Best Dam Barbecue pulls the nation’s best barbecuers as they compete for GRAND CHAMPION and their share of $8,500 in CASH PRIZES.

World Championship Invitational Barbecue (aka “The Jack”)…one of the most prestigious barbecue competitions in the world!
Complementing this annual tradition is the Best Dam Car Show, presenting mild to wild, shiny to grungy, antiques to classics – countless participants will come together to show off their rides.
