Nothing says holiday weekend to kickoff the summer more than BBQ, cold drinks, and great music! All those things are in one place this weekend in Denver!

Q BBQ Fest is the preeminent series of BBQ Festivals in America, and it’s back in the Mile High City at Empower Field at Mile High this weekend.

  • Kids ticket: Children 13-20 will need a ticket ($35) to enter the festival, and kids 12 and under are free. All children that come to the festival will also enjoy an all-you-can-eat experience, with unlimited water and soda.
