The Giant National Capital Barbecue Battle has become one of the largest and most unique food & music festivals in the country.

The event has received numerous awards such as being named “One of Five Can’t Miss Summer Festivals in the Country” by CNN, a “Top 10 BBQ Event” by The Travel Channel, “One of America’s Best BBQ Competitions” by Saveur Magazine and “An Event Worth Traveling To” by the American Bus Association, just to name a few.
