No matter how you spell it-Barbecue - Barbecue - Bar-B-Que - BBQ- You'll love America's National Barbecue Championship in the Nation's Capital. The Safeway 16th Annual Barbecue Battle will take place June 27 & 28 on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. The Barbecue Battle was voted one of North America's TOP 100 Events by the American Tourism Industry Association and a top BBQ Event by the Travel Channel and Discovery.com.
Here in the Shadow of the Nation's Capitol, tens of thousands of people witness barbecue teams and restaurants from around the country compete to win over $40,000 in cash and prizes and the title of National Pork BBQ Champion, as well as a chance to represent the Mid-Atlantic United States in the Barbecue World Championship, Memphis in May. Benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington, the Safeway Barbecue Battle celebrates the art of barbecue in a spirit of community, family, and fun. The event has raised over $1 million for it's beneficiaries.
