The Tri City BBQ Fest is the signature tourism event for Denison and Crawford County, Iowa and is one of the premier food and music festivals in the region. The festival pits three nearby metros in a battle for the best barbeque, all taking place among the historic streets of Uptown Denison!

The Kansas City Barbeque Society sanctioned event welcomes competitors from Omaha, Nebraska; Des Moines, Iowa; Sioux City, Iowa and beyond. A special "Best Metro" trophy will crown one of our 3 neighbors the victor, while visitors enjoy a wide variety of delicious smoked food, Iowa craft beer and fiery entertainment.


A diverse mix of BBQ and other treats will line our food vendor area. We plan to have multiple BBQ vendors and other favorites including burgers, popcorn, snow cones, ice cream and much, much more!


Don't miss the chart-topping rock of international recoding artists Fuel and The Verve Pipe, our headlining bands to close out the festival! Saturday's lineup also includes Saddle Creek Records artists Twinsmith, as well as Matt Whipkey and Burkum Boys (all of Omaha), and Cut the Rope, from Denison.

Plus, Hairball returns to kick off the festival with a healthy dose of fun arena rock on Friday night! Openers Shoot to Thrill are the premier AC/DC tribute in the Midwest.

All told, eight bands will perform throughout the Fest, so be sure to get the best value with a 2-Day Music Pass for the highly affordable price of just $25!


Choose from dozens of Iowa-brewed craft beers or your favorite domestics at the beer tent made famous at the Iowa State Fair. This is your chance to sample brews from across the state at the most fun beer tent ever.


Stay tuned to see what kind of super fun activities await adults and kids in 2015! Smash favorite Wacky Water Walkers will return this year!


Come ready to shop a wide variety of quality local merchants. In between your visits to the festival, support our unique local merchants to find home items, antiques, clothing and much more! A vendor fair will offer fun businesses to interact with throughout the festival.
