Sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society, the MD State BBQ Bash Championship attracts over 50 competition teams and offers $12,000 in prize money. This BBQ themed street festival offers something for everyone – world class music and BBQ, crafters, kids’ entertainment, sponsor exhibits, and two barbecue competitions – the Maryland State Championship for the pros, and the Tailgate Challenge for local rib kings. Best of all, it’s free to attend!
The winners of MD State BBQ Bash move on to participate in the American Royal World Series of Barbecue® and Jack Daniels World Championship Invitational Barbecue. The Maryland State BBQ Bash is sponsored by Visit Harford and in partnership with Fidelity Engineering and Benfield Electric.
