The World Series of Barbecue and Cowtown Family Fun Fest takes place on the infield of the Kansas Speedway. General Public parking is located outside, on the West side of the Speedway. The main entrance into the infield is through the main gates, down the stairs of the Speedway grandstands.

It is not the easiest area to traverse for guests with disabilities but we do our best to make it as accessible as possible. Designated handicap parking spaces will be available in the ADA lot in the General Public Parking lot and ADA compliant vehicles will drive guests from the parking lot into the inside of the Speedway to a drop off location. There will not be additional ADA/Transportation provided inside the event.

Families with strollers/young children are advised to purchase tickets in advance and ride the tram into the infield.
