Now in its 5th year, the Ceres Bands, Brews & BBQ Throwdown is a KCBS State Championship Qualifying and CBBQA ToY (Team of the Year). This year's contest features two divisions: Professional and Amateur/Backyard. Teams will be competing for cash and prizes!

Contingent on a 25-team PRO field, this year's PRO Division Grand Champion may receive an automatic entry to the American Royal World Series of Barbecue Invitational Contest. As always, this year's American Royal will host some of the most talented teams from across the world.

Also contingent on the minimum field, the GC may be placed into a draw for the Jack Daniel's World Championship Invitational Barbecue later this year.

Come watch the BBQ Teams on Friday evening as they begin prepping for Saturday's big event. We'll have music starting at 7 p.m. and the park Beer Garden will be open.

Saturday's events also include a public Rib-Eating Contest and People's Choice BBQ Tastings begin Saturday at 2:00 p.m. and are sure to sell out fast!
