LA BBQ Festival returns to Santa Monica

Sticky fingers, hickory smoke filled air, plastic bibs, draft beer, and country music. Yes, it’s back! The LA BBQ Festival returns to the Santa Monica Beach pier on September 9-11, promising to be the best BBQ meal you’ve ever had in your mouth. The three day event will feature authentic ‘cue from Texas, Kansas City, Chicago, Santa Maria and more, in addition to live entertainment, award winning desserts, and over 30 beers on tap, as well as wine.

In previous years, one ticket got you admission for the afternoon, but you then had to pay for plates of BBQ as you went along from line to line to agonizing line. This year, your all inclusive ticket get you unlimited BBQ, 24 beers on tap and wine, as well as desserts and sides. All this for a discount price of $60. To help with crowd control, the three hour sessions take place on Fri from 4:30-7:30pm, Sat & Sun 11am-2pm and 4-7pm. GET YOUR TICKETS HERE.
