The 4th Annual Arizona BBQ Festival makes its way to Salt River Fields Sat., April 20, with more than 25 top barbecue purveyors, and now adds a new twist to the event: the Redneck Games Arena. This year, fans have the chance to enter the Redneck Games Arena – an ultimate showdown site designed specifically for hilarious competitions – where guests put their hick talents to the test in an assortment of, yes, redneck-inspired games. Yee-haw!
“Although some of the most popular barbecue teams from years’ past will still be on hand to sell their award-winning ‘que,” says event Co-Founder, David Tyda, “----we wanted the event to be more lighthearted this year. And what’s more lighthearted than mullets and beer pong?!”
The 4th Annual Arizona BBQ Festival will be heaven on Earth for fans of smoked meat, with everything from $2 sample-cups to full racks of ribs and BBQ plates. This is the scrumptious food that crowds can find only at the Arizona BBQ Fest.
Salt River Fields became the home of the Arizona BBQ Festival last year, drawing some 18,000 people. With delicious barbecue and an assortment of imaginative games and competitions this year, event organizers decided to up the antics and make it a good ‘ole Honky-Tonk at SRF.
