The BBQ Festival will be held rain or shine! If it does rain, we have large tents that will provide some coverage.

The Madison Magazine BBQ Festival is an Official Wisconsin State Barbeque Championship and a Kansas City Barbecue Society (KCBS) sanctioned contest.

It will feature 30 BBQ pros to entertain and delight, two days of live music, delicious food, beer and wine, children’s activities, a Harley-Davidson Poker Run and so much more!

The financial proceeds of the Madison Magazine BBQ Festival will help support arts, young professionals and youth in the Sauk Prairie Community.

What is a sanctioned BBQ Competition?

It’s a competition with 30 of the nation’s top BBQ competitors facing off as they cook four different types of meat: Chicken, Pork Ribs, Pork Butt, & Brisket.

For more information about KCBS sanctioned events, please visit:

This is a sanctioned competition first and foremost. Not everyone will have access to sample small bites from our 30 competitors. There will be local barbecue and other food available for purchase. Everyone has the opportunity to watch and interact with the competitors as they prepare their meats on Saturday.
