New York City BBQ Cookoff

April 7 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Historic Richmond Town invites you to its 7th annual New York City BBQ Cookoff, the only Kansas City Barbeque Society sanctioned cookoff in New York City. This year, over 30 of the best pit-master teams from across the East Coast will compete on Saturday for cash prizes and the chance to advance to a worldwide competition. And you’ll have the chance to sample the best barbecued brisket, chicken, pulled pork and pork ribs and cast your vote for the “People’s Choice” award. Sample, stroll, quench and enjoy fun activities with the entire family, rain or shine.

Visit the historic buildings of the Main Village for all day fun!

• General Store: museum hunt for food preparation items of the 1800s

• Carpenter Shop: live demo of wooden ware for farm

• Tinsmith Shop: live demo of tinsmith for kitchen

• Stephens-Black House Kitchen: Coleslaw demo and sampling

The Cookoff starts at noon and runs until 4pm. New this year is the EventBrite FastPass line. Order your tickets online, $15 for adults and $8 for children 12 and under, and bring your printed or mobile ticket to be scanned at a prepaid-only line. Tickets at the gate are $18 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under.

All proceeds from the New York City BBQ Cookoff support the many educational programs and ongoing restoration efforts of Historic Richmond Town.
