23rd Annual

   Safeway Barbecue Battle

“America’s Food & Music Festival”

                                                                                                                       

 

June 27th and 28th, 2015 in Washington, DC –

Top BBQ Competitors, Cooking Demos, Interactive Exhibits, Musicians and More!

Benefitting DC Childrens Charities and Capital Area Food Bank

 

The Safeway Barbecue Battle has been cooking up lots of great food, music & fun on America’s Main Street, Pennsylvania Ave. for more than two decades. Kicking off the summer, this unique event takes place June 27th and 28th and is Washington’s largest annual food and music festival. The exciting Safeway Barbecue Battle offers Greater Washington area residents and visitors alike, the chance to celebrate the first weekend of summer with family and friends in our nation’s capital.

 

This two-day festival includes delicious barbecue and grilled taste treats of all kinds from around the country, two days of non-stop musical and family entertainment, cooking demonstrations by Top National BBQ Chefs and America’s Only National Barbecue Cooking Championship sanctioned by the National Pork Board. While entertaining so many food, music and fun-lovers, the Safeway Barbecue Battle has also raised over $1.6 million dollars for DC Children’s Charities and donated tons of food and funds to other area charities over the years. In 2015 the event will be helping to raise funds for the Butler Wyatt Boys & Girls Club and The Capital Area Food Bank. In addition, Military Chef’s representing the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard will be cooking off to raise even more money for the USO.

 

Pennsylvania Avenue will be smoking with plenty of great BBQ provided by Top Chef’s from across the country along with Competitive BBQ teams battling to win over $40,000 in cash and prizes in the Safeway National Barbecue Championship contest, sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) and the National Pork Board. The ever-popular Safeway Sampling Pavilion showcases a line-up of delicious and tempting free BBQ & Grilled food samples while celebrity chefs and cookbook authors entertain with cooking demonstrations on the Safeway Demonstration Stage. The BBQ Bazaar area at the Battle features legends of BBQ from Discovery America’s popular “Pitmasters” show with tastings, book signings and demos.

 

There’s something for everyone’s musical taste with 30 bands on three stages, family entertainment on multiple stages along with interactive exhibits providing hands-on and virtual fun for all. Besides all the great food, music, cooking entertainment and competition, there are activities for kids of all ages to enjoy such as NBA Nation featuring NBA Basketball Stars and plenty of court action.

 

The Safeway Barbecue Battle has received many awards and distinctions over the years including being named “One of 5 Can’t Miss Summer Festivals in the US” by CNN Travel, a “Top BBQ Event” by The Travel Channel and Discovery.com, and one of “America's Best BBQ Competitions” by Saveur Magazine. The event has been covered extensively on national and international television, as well as radio, print and online media.
