More than 25 barbecue purveyors are only part of what’s expected to draw more than 15,000 people to the AZ BBQ Festival on Saturday, April 5, at Salt River Fields.
Local restaurants will serve bacon creations in an effort to win a Best Bacon Dish award, and Bourbon Jacks in Chandler and Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row in Scottsdale will host bars. A Spiked Lemonade Party Tent will sell vodka-soaked snow cones. Bands, live International Wrestling Federation shows, a Redneck Games Arena and chef demos add to the fun.
Tickets are $12 for adults and free for children 12 and younger. For information, visit azbbqfestival.com.
