BBQ on the Bow is an annual Kansas City BBQ Society (KCBS) sanctioned BBQ Competition and outdoor festival taking place at the Montgomery Community Association (Shouldice Park) during Labour Day long week (August 31 & September 1, 2019). The mission is to spread the love, passion and joy for “southern style” BBQ while simultaneously celebrating and promoting local products, businesses and musicians. BBQ on the Bow is free to attend and aims to provide something for all ages.
Founded in 1993, BBQ on the Bow was created to jointly promote “southern BBQ” and Alberta agricultural products (pork, beef and chicken). Now in it’s 27th year the event has endured everything mother nature has had to throw at it and has evolved from a small competition with a handful of teams to one of Canada’s premier competitions with over 35 teams competing annually.
