Event description
Join us for a smoky September night at the 40th Anniversary of the American Royal World Series of Barbecue. A benefit for Be Head Strong.

About this Event

Now in its 8th year, helping local families affected by Brian Tumors, we are gearing up for another great party at the Kansas Speedway at this year's 40th American Royal World Series of Barbecue.

Pork 'N Boots is a chef-studded night full of smoky treats, delicious libations and plenty of dancing to live music by The Zeros and DJ Chace.

As always 100% of the proceeds benefit local families. Be Head Strong (BHS) supports brain tumor patients and caregivers in the Kansas City community through partnerships with local doctors, hospitals and other organizations. BHS is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
