2017 American Royal World Series of Barbecue

400 Speedway Blvd
Kansas City, MO 66111

Nobody knows barbecue like Kansas City. And to celebrate our love for the smoky treat, our fair city will once again host the 2017 American Royal World Series of Barbecue on Thursday, August 31 through Sunday, September 3.

The four-day festival will feature more than 500 grillmasters who will be competing for top awards in a wide range of juried categories, including best sauce and best brisket. Savory barbecue isn’t the only thing on the menu either.

Other attractions include Taste of KC Barbecue, a car show, live music and carnival rides. For the little ones, there will be a Cowtown Family Fun Fest, which will feature a variety of fun-filled activites: mechanical bull rides, pony rides and tractor races.

The delicious extravaganza is put on by The American Royal each year. A non-profit organization that works to raise money for educational programs in agriculture.
