Safeway Barbecue Battle
Get ready to wipe the BBQ sauce off your cheeks while jamming to 30 rock, reggae, jazz and blues bands on three stages at the Safeway Barbecue Battle. Grilling teams from around the country will celebrate the joy of cooking in competitions for Best Chicken, Best Beef, Best Pork Shoulder and Best Pork Rib, and you can celebrate the joy of eating while getting your fill of all of the above. This annual event is a must for any D.C. lover of grilled meat, and CNN Travel named it a "can't-miss summer festival." Bask in this sweet-savory cloud of mesquite and music at the Safeway Barbecue Battle for one day, two days or for the Party Pass, which includes access to the VIP Hospitality Area, as well as a BBQ Battle Apron and a BBQ Goodie Bag to take home.
