The first event of its kind, The Central Oregon BBQ, Brews & Whiskey Festival + Marketplace will feature beer and whiskey tastings alongside several food vendors offering BBQ options from around the world. Enjoy a sunny summer weekend full of new and classic flavors while catching inspiring demos and speakers in the heart of Oregon. We are so excited to offer the first of many events featuring brews and the traditional art of BBQ.


This inaugural event is bringing the delicious BBQ style of cooking to Central Oregon. Nearly every culture has a history of enjoying food cooked outside and over a fire. Cooking over the fire adds distinct flavor and makes it the perfect activity to share food and fun during the heat of the summer. The char and unique sauces of classic BBQ make it a favorite eat throughout generations. The style and flavors usually vary based on region and chef, sometimes with heated debate about what makes a proper BBQ.

Share your BBQ tradition with us at the 2021 Central Oregon BBQ, Brews & Whiskey Festival. We can’t want to dig in!
