National Capital Barbecue Battle

Food festival
Please note: This event has already occurred.
This annual battle is no amateur affair: Past winners have gone on to open their own restaurants in the area and market their sauces nationwide. At this year's 20th-anniversary event, taste finger-lickin' meats and check out cooking demonstrations, a talent show and live performances by Soul Asylum, Cowboy Mouth and the Chuck Brown Tribute Band.
