Instead of waiting for your summer BBQ gathering, where you have to do all the grilling and preparing yourself, you can enjoy a festival with the best backyard BBQ ribs ever. Grillin N Chillin BBQ Festival is bringing the biggest and best barbecue selection in South Florida this weekend.

You need to come hungry and ready to eat when you visit this festival on May, 19th. Grillin N Chillin has the best barbecue recipes and it will feature BBQ spare ribs, southern brisket and mouth-watering pulled pork sandwich from the best local restaurants.

This is the 7th anniversary of the festival and every year it gets bigger and tastier. The event is completely free but you can also purchase four drinks for $20 and save some bucks at the event. Drinks at the event will cost around $12.

This year, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy a BBQ and mixology bar with smoky creations such as their Bourbon Brunch cocktail, maple syrup and bourbon-based cocktail garnished with grilled bacon and fried mini waffle. Who wouldn't want to try that out!?

The festival will also feature a hot dog eating contest, live music, Mac N Cheese competition, the biggest sauce bar you have ever seen, The Kitchen Lab & BBQ Rib-Off (where competitors will grill on stage), Hot Dog Zone, and Miami's biggest BBQ selections. 

There will be all different types of vendors avaliable from Korean BBQ and Memphis, Texas or Kansas City barbecue, to the well-known Brazilian Churrasco and Argentine Parrillada. This is a festival for the entire family and is even dog friendly. You can also RSVP here to get a free cocktail at the event.

Grillin N Chillin BBQ Festival will be held at Peacock Park located at 2820 McFarlane Rd, Coconut Grove Miami, FL 33133. We hope to see you there!
