You can achieve BBQ glory by signing up now to compete in the largest amateur barbecue contest on the West Coast, the Spring Valley Tailgate and BBQ Festival.
The 10th annual Spring Valley Tailgate and BBQ Festival takes place on Oct. 27, 2019 in front of Cali Comfort BBQ, 8910 Troy St., in Spring Valley, just a short drive from downtown San Diego.
The exciting KCBS-sanctioned backyard BBQ competition and food festival is limited to 20 amateur backyard BBQ teams so sign up now. There’s a huge demand from teams to take part in the Spring Valley Tailgate and BBQ Festival, so please register ASAP if you want to compete.
The #SVBBQFEST is the perfect way to learn how to take your backyard BBQ skills and test them out in a contest that helps raise money for local youth charities.
Some of the top teams from the annual West Coast BBQ contest have gone on to compete at the highest level of Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) championship events and have even opened barbecue businesses of their own.
