Denver Barbecue Festival:

“The Denver BBQ Fest is a celebration of award-winning BBQ,” Director of Business Development of Empower Field at Mile High Chuck Olney said. “We’re bringing the best pit masters from right here in Denver and around the country to our backyard at Empower Field at Mile High for everyone to enjoy.”


Admission is FREE on Friday evening (beginning at 5 p.m.), Saturday and Sunday (beginning at 10 a.m.), and attendees will be able to listen to great music and purchase world-class BBQ from some of the most iconic pit masters and restaurants across the country.


To skip the lines, Ticketed VIP Passes and all-you-can-eat Pit Passes can be purchased in advance. This year, the VIP Pit Pass is bigger, better and more BBQ-y than ever! This all-inclusive experience gets you in the pits with the Legends, where you can watch them work their meaty magic while they feed you their world-famous Q. Additionally, you can enjoy complimentary cocktails crafted from recipes that the pit masters themselves created, as well as beer, wine and soft drinks.
