World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest at NRG Park
Thursday, February 22, 2018
Kick off the rodeo festivities with this three-day barbecue contest and festival. More than 250 teams will compete to win the crown; and while most tents are invite-only, there are some great open-to-the-public venues, including The Garden, Rockin’ Bar-B-Que Saloon, and the Chuck Wagon (the carnival is also open with wild rides and fun games).
Times vary each day.
Tickets can be purchased for $15; $5 for children 3 to 12 and include one-day admission to the carnival, Saloon and Chicken Wagon; a complimentary bbq plate with brisket, beans, and chips; and access to live music areas.
