On Sunday of Labor Day weekend, the Big Gig BBQ will take place on the Summerfest Grounds to coincide with the Milwaukee Rally! Enjoy the best BBQ in town on the south end of Henry Maier Festival Park from 5-10pm, rain or shine. Presented by Meijer, the Big Gig BBQ will be serving up smoky ribs, savory brisket and signature BBQ from ten of the best local and national cookers.

An officially sanctioned event of the Milwaukee Rally, the Big Gig BBQ will feature two stages of live entertainment, including a national headliner, and the finest beer. Some of the BBQ participants include:

Atlas BBQ
Charcoal Grill & Rotisserie
Dickey’s Barbecue Pit
Double B’s BBQ & Burgers
Famous Dave’s Bar-B-Que
Maxie’s
Pitch’s
Saz’s
Silver Spur
Smoke Shack

Plenty of beer will be available – of course – along with Biker Billy’s cooking show on the Briggs & Stratton Big Backyard Stage and music headliners to be announced. The Big Gig BBQ website has all the details!

The Big Gig BBQ takes place on the south end of Henry Maier Festival Park, which many simply call the Summerfest Grounds. It’s along Milwaukee’s lakefront bordered by downtown, I-794, U.S. 18 and Discovery World, and the Milwaukee River as it meets Lake Michigan. Highways 32, 38, 59, and 145 also bring you with blocks. It will be a fun part of the Milwaukee Rally Labor Day weekend!
