8th Annual Great American Barbecue & Beer Festival Comes to the Valley


Head down to Chandler this March to take a big bite out of the 8th annual Great American Barbecue & Beer Festival.

This popular festival has won "Outstanding Event of the Year'" twice and hosts thousands of people every year. For 2017, the Barbecue & Beer Festival will feature over 100 exhibitors, over 20,000 lbs. of deliciously smoked pork ribs, chicken and brisket, and 200 kegs of Arizona-brewed craft beer.

Adding to that will be high-profile country music artists headlining the event, as well as several eating competitions, a farmer’s market, a kid’s zone, grilling and live cooking demonstrations, backyard beer games and even a March Madness lounge for basketball fans who don’t want to miss a second of the tournament.

The BBQ & Beer Festival is also helping out a good cause, with their website stating, “A portion of the event proceeds will benefit the Boot Campaign, a 501(c)(3) dedicated to providing assistance to wounded military and their families with job placement and securing mortgage free homes, post-traumatic stress disorder counseling, adaptive clothing and much more.”
