The Barbecue is much more than a competition. It’s a two-day festival with something for everyone: live local music, delicious foods, beer and cocktails, a car show, a BBQ Marketplace, and activities for the kids.
Plus, this year we're celebrating 40 years of competition BBQ in Kansas City so get ready for more events and activities than ever! The American Royal World Series of Barbecue® will be the place to be this September 13-14. So mark your calendars, tell your friends, and we'll see you at the Speedway!
