Enjoy great music, food and drinks as you get to watch some of the nation’s top teams prepare their award winning barbeque. This is your chance to speak to the teams as the competition heats up and we get closer to crowning the Inaugural BBQ Champion of Silicon Valley.

The Silicon Valley BBQ Championships will open up at 11:00AM. At that time the 50 BBQ professional teams will be getting close to putting their final touches on their delectable creations. At 12:00PM the professional teams will start to turn in their tasty BBQ to be judged by the knowledgeable panel of Certified KCBS judges. Teams will be competing in four following categories: Pork Ribs, Pulled Pork, Chicken Thighs and Brisket.

There will be over 20 food vendors and many of the professional teams will be selling samples of their competition level BBQ. There will be soda and waters as well as beer and wine, with over 5 booths locations; to make sure that no matter where you are refreshments are only a few steps away. All items are sold for cash only but several ATM’s will be available for your convenience.

If you’re still hungry for more fun and excitement spend some time on one of the 15 attractions in the KidZone where there is fun for kids of all ages; you can jump in the bounce house, take a ride on the giant slide or see if you have the skills to go 8 seconds on a mechanical bull.

If it’s time for a break, take a ride around the lake on the NASCAR train. Choo! Choo!


Before the night is through we will be crowning our champions so don’t miss the excitement and join us at the Silicon Valley BBQ Championships located at Santa Clara’s beautiful Central Park located at Kiely and Homestead Boulevard in Santa Clara, California.
