MORE INFO & Tickets:

You won’t want to miss the biggest pre-party to the world’s largest livestock show and rodeo. More than 250 teams led by barbecue aficionados will compete in a traditional Texas cook-off. While most team tents are invitation-only, visitors can enjoy the public venues including the Miller Lite Garden, Rockin’ Bar-B-Que Saloon and the Chuck Wagon, where you receive a complimentary chopped beef sandwich plate. Come enjoy three days of cooking, competition, eating and dancing! Check out this amazing Fulham drinks company that delivers any liquor you need to your house.

The Garden
The Garden, located in the center of the World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest, provides live music all three days of the contest for a fun family event. See entertainment schedule below.

Rockin’ Bar-B-Que Saloon
