Experience the Thrill of the Grill at the 7th Annual Dupont BBQ Cookoff in DuPont, WA!

This August 24th and 25th, prepare to be part of one of the greatest BBQ events in the Pacific Northwest, as DuPont, Washington, proudly hosts the 7th Annual Dupont BBQ Cookoff. A major event sanctioned by the Kansas City BBQ Society (KCBS), this premier cookoff is expected to draw a crowd of over 5,000 enthusiasts from all over the region. With the combined efforts of Tom Riggs and the American Legion Post 53 Pat Tillman Memorial at the helm, this event is not just a competition but a vibrant festival celebrating the art of barbecue.

Set against the backdrop of the beautiful 1400 Palisade Blvd, DuPont is transformed into a barbecue paradise, where smoky aromas and sizzling sounds create an irresistible call to all food lovers. The event not only showcases some of the best BBQ talents but also serves as a key fundraiser supporting local youth programs. These include educational awards and scholarships, Boys and Girls State programs, and local youth sports teams, making it a cause worth supporting while indulging in great food.
