This June 25th & 26th , Historic Pennsylvania Ave. between 3rd & 7th Streets, NW, Washington, DC will become the epicenter of BBQ perfection, bringing together delicious BBQ, delectable summer specialties, nationally recognized BBQ contests, popular bands, celebrity chefs & more.

Washington’s tastiest summer celebration pays tribute to everything barbecue and truly embodies the best that America has to offer.

For two days, amazing sights, sounds, and the sweet hickory aroma of mouth-watering barbecue replace the usual hustle & bustle of city life.
