Join us at the all new Central Oregon BBQ, Brews & Whiskey Festival! Along with delicious food and drink offerings, the event will feature the Outdoor Adventure Marketplace and Business Showcase.

We are seeking local businesses for the Outdoor Adventure Marketplace that specialize in bringing a sense of adventure to our daily lives, whether it be in your backyard or in the outback! The Business Showcase also provides an opportunity for local professional businesses and non-profits to inform and educate event-goers about what makes your product or service unique.

Sanctioned by the Pacific Northwest BBQ Association

Join us at the all new Central Oregon BBQ, Brews & Whiskey Festival! We will be offering a competition style cooking event for BBQ pit masters around the region. The winners and grand champions of these BBQ contests are qualified to be invited to cook at national and world championship events. Teams travel from all over the PNW for the chance to show off their stuff.

While everyone loves a good BBQ, there are several more steps involved in the preparation of competition BBQ. While the backyard cook may slap some rub on a pork shoulder, smoke it and add sauce at the end, the competition teams will spend countless hours trimming, injecting, layering rubs, smoking and then applying different sauces or blends before presenting their finished product to the judges. 

Be a part of BBQ magic at the 2022 Central Oregon BBQ, Brews and Whiskey Festival!
