Bands, Brews & BBQ in Kenosha« Back to Events
Formerly the Grill Games, Kenosha’s newly-christened “Bands, Brews, & BBQ on the Beach” is a free three-day weekend festival featuring outstanding live musical acts throughout the day and plenty of grills and BBQ. This year, it runs Friday, August 24th through Saturday, August 25th. The event gets a new name and a fresh shot of vision as the newly christened Bands, Brews & BBQs on the Kenosha Lakefront at Pennoyer & Kennedy Parks.
Like before when it was the Grill Games, check out the Wisconsin State Championship BBQ contest with teams from the Kansas City Barbeque Society! You can learn their secrets, taste and purchase BBQ, and vote for your favorite teams. There are also plenty of kids’ activities and a beer garden – because beer pairs exceptionally well with tasty BBQ. “Kenosha’s Best BBQ Contest” runs Friday the 24th from 5pm to 8pm and the “People’s Choice BBQ Competition” runs Saturday the 25th from 2pm to 4:30pm.
Admission is free, althrough a $1 donation is suggested. I mean, c’mon, people! Proceeds benefit the scholarship foundations of the Kenosha YMCA and the Kenosha Area Chamber of Commerce.
