The Brisbane BBQ Festival is an epic 2-day celebration of music, meat and fire to be held on the sporting fields at Victoria Park, Herston on June 30th and July 1st.
Now in its 4th year, the popular event will see BBQ food stalls, bars, BBQ markets, live music, great entertainment for the whole family, The Brisbane BBQ Championships and a whole heap more.
On offer will be a mouth-watering selection of barbecued meats from around 20 different BBQ food vendors besides outdoor bars serving everything from cocktails to craft beer to wine and bourbon.
Barbecue vendors will be serving up a carnivore’s fantasy smorgasbord of everything smoky and sticky; from slow-cooked brisket to finger-lickin’ ribs, pulled pork to gourmet smoked sausages.
Aficionados and first-timers alike can also learn the tricks of barbecuing (including the latest low and slow cooking techniques) and brewing from the best in the business at the BBQ demos throughout the day.
Keeping the crowds entertained will be an awesome line-up of Queensland’s best Rockabilly bands performing live, making this a great way to spend a lazy winter weekend.
There's plenty to keep the kids occupied too, with a fun zone featuring plenty of activities for kids of all ages including a mechanical bull, human foosball, jumping castles and various giant games as well as a face painter and balloon artist.
A $15,000 competition prize pool will also be up for grabs as up to 60 of Australia’s best BBQ crews fire up the festival showcasing their talents across 6 categories in the BBQ Arena competing for the crown of Brisbane BBQ Champions.
And as well as the professionally judged BBQ competition, there will be various food eating contests such as hot wing eating and ice-cream eating.
