Mouthwatering Barbecue

Enjoy a smorgasbord of mouthwatering barbecue from our pitmasters

Blues & BBQ has become a summer tradition, and cruising Junge Food Alley for lunch and dinner is a big part! Traditional barbecue favorites such as ribs, pulled pork and burnt ends, as well as ice cream, pizza, sno-cones and more will be available beginning at 10 a.m.

We appreciate your help in diverting festival waste from the landfill by following the lead of our eco-attendant volunteers stationed throughout the event. Every slab of ribs will be served on a compostable container; the corner of every mouth will be dabbed by a compostable napkin; and if, for some reason, you need flatware instead of using your fingers, that will be compostable, too.
