15TH ANNUAL PORK & BREW


JUNE 29 - JULY 1, 2018



The 15th Annual Pork & Brew as seen on "The Cooking Channel's Carnival Eats" will return to the Santa Ana Star Center June 29-July 1. Bringing together the best barbecue vendors from around the region, this three-day festival featuring BBQ, beer, live music, cooking demos and interactive family activities will be one of the biggest events of the summer. Galloping Grace Youth Ranch will be returning to the event, showcasing a petting zoo and pig races throughout the weekend.  Visit with Orbit on Friday, June 29 from 4:30 - 5PM.

The 15th Annual Pork & Brew, hosted by the Rio Rancho Convention and Visitors Bureau, will feature an indoor/outdoor format, ensuring the 15,000 expected attendees can enjoy all the festival has to offer rain or shine. This is quite possibly the best way to kick off your 4th of July weekend this summer in New Mexico. One major change to this year's event is the elimination of "BBQ Bucks". Vendors will now be accepting cash and credit cards for payment. Between chomps of fantastic BBQ, you can check out local arts and crafts, burn off some calories by dancing to live music and even take the kids for a face painting and a few trips through the bouncy houses. There will also be kid’s watermelon and adult pie eating contests twice daily.

Event Times:
Friday, June 29th, 3PM - 9PM 
Saturday, June 30th, 11AM - 7PM
Sunday, July 1st, 12PM - 6PM
