Join us of a full day of mouth-watering BBQ along with side dishes and desserts that showcase the bounty of the Valley. We anticipate more than 30 competitors from around the country and many from right here in Fresno County will be competing for a prize purse of $8,000 awarded over four categories and Grand Champion.

Guests will see professionals and amateurs at work on the grill, feast on BBQ and all the fixings while watching live music and enjoying a stroll through our "Fields of Fresno - A Century in the Soil" outdoor agriculture exhibition; all presented in the lush, shade of historic Kearney Park.
