Derby BBQ Festival
Sept. 13, 2014 at High Park

Rods 'n Ribs Car Show

The Derby BBQ Festival, formerly known as the National Bar-B-Que Derby, is so close you can almost taste it!

Make plans now to attend this fun fall event for the whole family, 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 13, 2014 at beautiful High Park, 2801 James St. in Derby, Kan.

At the heart of the Derby BBQ Festival is the Kansas City Barbeque Society Cook-off where 40 pro teams vie for $7,500 in prizes, and a chance to compete at the American Royale World Series of Barbeque in October. We will also host a Backyard BBQ Cook-off, for aspiring pit masters; a Kids’ Chocolate Chip Cookie Bake-off; and a new contest called Anything Bacon. That’s right, you can enter any type of food as long as it includes the most important ingredient of all, bacon!

And, just ‘cause we also like to eat barbeque, the Verus Bank People’s Choice Cook-off wilDerby BBQ Festival logol be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. This event gives the public an opportunity to sample competition-quality pulled pork for just $5. Still hungry, there will be plenty of other food vendors to satisfy all of your festival cravings.

In addition to contests and barbeque eating, this year’s Derby BBQ Festival will include the flavorful music of The Kentucky Gentlemen and Linnaberry Wine. The Cox Communications Kids’ Corner will offer a variety of free entertainment including pig races, inflatables for all ages, the magic of Shawn Reida, face painting and much more.

Car enthusiasts will also love Bumper to Bumper’s Third Annual Rods and Ribs Car Show. A low-cost entry fee lets you show off your ride. Or, just take a stroll thru time and pick out your favorites.

Proceeds from the Derby BBQ Festival benefit the Airman & Family Readiness Center at McConnell Air Force Base.
