BBQ on the Bow is an annually occurring 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 (September 2 & 3 2017). The mission is to spread the love, passion and joy for “southern style” BBQ while simultaneously celebrating and promoting local products, businesses and musicians. The BBQ on the Bow is free to attend and aims to provide something for all ages.
Founded in 1993, the BBQ on the Bow was created to jointly promote “Southern BBQ” and Alberta agricultural products (pork, beef and chicken products). Now in it’s 25th 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.
