      Join us for America’s Highest BBQ Competition, at 10,152′!

      The Leadville/Lake County Chamber of Commerce is excited to host a family-friendly, fun-filled weekend of tasting fresh BBQ prepared by some of the country’s best pitmasters, sipping fine local micro brews, and listening to live music. The event will include a family zone with numerous activities, including a “kids Q.” Starting Friday afternoon, children ages five to 15, accompanied by an adult, can compete by cooking a meat of their choosing on a small Weber grill. Entries will be judged and scored for a chance at a trophy and cash. Enjoy all this, only 100 miles from the Denver metro area!

      Schedule:

      On Friday, the festival kicks off with the National Anthem at noon. Live music on the Harrison Avenue stage starts at 3 p.m. Music and enjoying some of the best BBQ to be had continues until 9 p.m.

      The fun starts again on Saturday at 10:00 a.m. Music resumes at noon on Saturday, with an awards ceremony in the afternoon for the BBQ competitors. Food sales continue until 5 p.m.
