Come enjoy the music, flavor, and fun at Washington Irving Park and Arboretum 13700 S Memorial. Music is our main attraction and good food is the heart of this event. We are a Kansas City Barbeque Society sanctioned event and we draw the best teams and chefs from near and far. You will have a limited opportunity to “JUDGE” the smoky flavored meats. Purchase a $10.00 Taster Kit and you will delight your taste buds. Taster Kits are limited in number and are only sold during the times of the official competition: Taster Kit Sales begin at 11:00 am Saturday and will be sold only until 1:00 pm or until the food runs out. Remember you will be the judge and each team is trying to win your vote (ticket) for their chances in prize money. During the entire festival plenty of good food available in “Vendors Row” We have local companies that offer a great menu of BBQ, Hamburgers, Corn Dogs, Ice Cream, Popcorn, Snow Cones, Lemonade just to mention a few. There is a huge area dedicated to kids: Inflatable jumps for all age groups, Pony Rides, and a petting zoo, The entire park has a background of good music resounding through the trees. The grassy expanse of the Washington Irving Amphitheater will host a variety of music. Proceeds from this festival go right back into the community for projects like High School Scholarships and the Bixby Outreach Center food bank assisting all of south Tulsa county. The “Third Grade Dictionary Project” helps eliminate illiteracy by distributing 800 dictionaries to local students. Other benefactors are the “Rotary Leadership Youth Camps”, where students develop leadership, communication, and problem-solving skills, and “Shop with a Cop”, a cooperative youth intervention program involving local law enforcement, the Bixby YMCA, Christmas Parade, and the Memorial Day Ceremony.
