Welcome to the official website of the the BBQ Music Fest.
The 2024 BBQ Music Fest will be held August 16-18, 2024 at the spacious green park - Huntington Beach Sports Complex located in Huntington Beach, California. FREE PARKING!
It's a three-day BBQ extravaganza featuring live entertainment from local bands, a smokin’ food court (including non-BBQ related items), DJ and dance lessons, cantinas, local artisans, carnival rides and games, a children's area with magic shows and balloon twisting (Sat. and Sun.). Taste and experience firsthand the fiery chicken, pulled pork, tri-tip, pork ribs, sausages... and sides (all available for purchase) that makes barbecue so popular in the USA — all while you enjoy taking an E-picture at the free souvenir photo booth, catch a game at the live sports tent, sing along to all your favorite songs at the karaoke lounge with a live band (Fri. & Sat. night), treat yourself to a first-class tequila/whiskey tasting experience by El Baston del Rey (Voted #1) and more.
Award-winning national BBQ pitmasters will make their way to the festival to battle it out against local barbecue gurus (grillers) for grand title for the Best BBQ and your vote as the People's Choice Favorite. Trust us, the competition will be intense and the flavors rich in a fierce effort to produce the best that their secret recipes have to offer.
First place winners from seasons past are returning to battle it out among new comers as well...It’s time to grab the family, put on loose clothes, come with an empty stomach and head to the BBQ Music Fest Extravaganza, right here in Southern California.

ON SUNDAY, AUGUST 18TH: Grillers will battle it out among themselves to see if they've got what it takes to be the next BBQ champ. More than 25 BBQ backyard chefs will face off to take home the prize and grand title. It’s an event that allows anyone who wants to “get their feet wet” in the world of BBQ competition to do so. Festival goers will get a firsthand look at how seriously barbequers take their grilling as they show off their skills. You can look, smell and often taste. If you ask when a team isn’t busy preparing an entry for the judges, you can get some practical tips on how to improve your home barbeque cooking skills.
These amateur pitmasters will face a table of four official judges and four judges of their peers (at random draw). YOU CAN BE A JUDGE! We'll draw judges at random on August 18, 2024 at 1:30PM.
Ready your bib for one long weekend of smoking-hot recipes, family fun and fiery competition between spatula-wielding grill masters. The aromas of smoked meat and burning wood will make you drool like a fool as you scan the food court for firsts, seconds, thirds, and so on. Pulled pork sandwiches, fresh-off-the-bone ribs, tangy barbecue chicken and many other finger-licking dishes deserve space on your plate.
Award-winning pitmasters from all over the nation and Southern California’s finest will get in each other’s grill and crank out the most flavorful meats to ever grace your taste buds. While the sweet, savory sauces trickle down your arm, you’ll have the opportunity to cast your vote and determine the People’s Choice Favorite.
