Safeway Barbecue Battle comes to Penn Quarter this weekend
The Safeway Barbecue Battle will be in Penn Quarter on Saturday and Sunday this weekend, resulting in the closure of Pennsylvania Ave between 9th and 14th Streets.
The attraction will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Saturday and from 11:00 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. on Sunday.
CNN has named the festival one of the five can't-miss summer festivals in the United States. There will be free food samples, cooking demonstrations, celebrity chefs, talent shows, the world's largest grill (it's a truck), and the national pork barbecue kickoff, with contesting competing for the $40,000 prize.
More information is available here, and ticket are available online for $10 here, but you can also buy them at the event.
