Chillin n Grillin BBQ Festival and Carnival

As of March 24, 2020 CHILLIN N GRILLIN BBQ FESTIVAL AND CARNIVAL has been CANCELLED.  We are hoping by taking this action we will be helping in keeping our community safe and healthy.  

Chillin n Grillin BBQ Festival started in 2009 as a small fundraiser for the chamber with 14 cooking teams competing. The next year it became a sanctioned contest with Kansas City BBQ Society (KCBS) and has grown every year. 2017 was a pivotal year in many ways. RiverCity Park was under construction so it was moved to the Sand Springs Pogue Airport next to Platinum Air. The contest drew overall 44 teams for a various BBQ contests.  The Chillin’ & Grillin’ BBQ Festival is a prime opportunity to sample some delicious barbecue.  This year we are holding the event back in the Case Community Park.  This years event will feature several of our local companies as they gear up to cook for People’s Choice.  Here are a few that are participating: Okie Spice and Trade Co, CUST-O-FAB, Green Country FCU, Masonic Lodge, and Vets that Matter.  So bring you appetite on Saturday May 30th to taste some amazing BBQ.  People’s Choice starts at 11a – 2p, but get there early or the BBQ could run out.
