https://www.longbeachbbqfestival.com/The 2018 Long Beach BBQ Festival will be held in an outdoor family park atmosphere on August 17-19, at the picturesque Rainbow Lagoon in Long Beach, California. It's a three-day BBQ extravaganza featuring live entertainment from local bands, a smokin’ food court (including non-BBQ related items), cantinas, arts and crafts, a children's area, games and a dance floor. Taste and experience firsthand the fiery chicken, pulled pork, tri-tip, pork ribs, sausages... and sides (all available for purchase) that makes barbecue so popular in the USA — all while you enjoy taking an E-picture at the free souvenir photo booth, catch a game at the live sports tent, karaoke lounge (Fri. & Sat. night), hold a snake at the Interactive Live Reptile Exhibit, pig out at the All-You-Can-Eat VIP Rib Village and more. Award-winning national BBQ pitmasters will make their way to the festival to battle it out against local barbecue gurus (grillers) for grand title for the Best BBQ and your vote as the People's Choice Favorite. Trust us, the competition will be intense and the flavors rich in a fierce effort to produce the best that their secret recipes have to offer. It’s time to grab the family, put on loose clothes, come with an empty stomach and head to the Long Beach BBQ Extravaganza, right here in Southern California.
