11TH ANNUAL PORK & BREW BBQ STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS

THANK YOU TO ALL THOSE THAT ATTENDED!  WE HOPE YOU WILL BE BACK FOR THE 12TH ANNUAL PORK & BREW, JULY 3-5, 2015!

The 11th Annual Pork & Brew and New Mexico BBQ State Championship will return to the Santa Ana Star Center from July 4 – 6, bringing together the best barbecue vendors from around the region for a
three-day festival featuring food, beer, live music and interactive family activities.

This year’s event, presented by the Santa Ana Star Casino and hosted by the Rio Rancho Convention and Visitors Bureau, will feature an indoor/outdoor format ensuring the 20,000 expected attendees can enjoy all the festival has to offer rain or shine.

This is quite possibly the best way to spend 4th of July weekend this summer in New Mexico. 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.

Times: Friday & Saturday, July 4 & 5 - 11am - 8pm and Sunday, July 6, 11am - 5pm
