A community favorite for nearly a decade, The New York City Barbecue Cook-Off (KCBS) returns to Historic Richmond Town's Main Village site Saturday, April 6th! Amazing grill masters and saucy royalty from all over the East Coast and Canada will smoke-up the streets of Historic Richmond Town at New York City’s only Officially Sanctioned Kansas City Barbecue Society (KCBS) Cook-off. Be a part of this internationally acclaimed food festival! 

Listen to live music and sip on beer as you partake in gourmet Barbecue and vote for your favorite in each delectable category! 

Historic Richmod Town puts it's own spin on the competition with activities for all ages! Taste an authentic coleslaw recipe, play a spice game in a 19th century General Store, help make soap bubbles as big as a basketball, play with folk toys and watch the tradepeople demonstrate wares of the time! 

Each children's ticket comes with an event wide scavenger hunt to keep the little ones entertained all day long!
