More than 250 teams, led by barbecue aficionados, compete in the World's Championship Bar-B-Que Contest.  While most team tents are invitation-only, visitors can also enjoy several public venues.


With a Bar-B-Que Contest ticket, visitors may enjoy The Garden Stage, sponsored by Miller Lite, which presents some of the best names in Texas country music. Check for the entertainment schedule on The Garden Stage when it is closer to the event.


A delicious complimentary sliced brisket plate with chips and beans awaits guests at The Chuck Wagon, and next door, visitors will enjoy the Rockin' Bar-B-Que Saloon, which features live and DJ music.  At the saloon you can find an outdoor patio area. 


The Carnival is available for people to enjoy throughout the day and night (rides and food items are an additional cost).
