downloadOne of the highlights of the summer will happen on June 11th & 12th outside at Mohegan Sun where you can savor the flavors of the best barbecue around with festivities featuring live music, a beer trailer, barbecue battles and so much more.

BBQ Vendors
Some of the many vendors.

I have visited attended every year and even performed with the Stephanie Hansen Band once before retiring from the band business.

My favorites: 1) sampling all the BBQ, eating candied bacon, Dora’s Cupcakes and listening to the great live music.  Oh, BTW, the fireworks “ain’t too shabby” either – actually – they’re spectacular.

SUGGESTION – bring your own chairs with a cover – it gets pretty hot out there.

BBQ FestREMEMBER THAT:

  1. No outside food or beverages will be allowed.
  2. Picnic tables and other seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Guests are welcome to bring in their own folding chairs if desired.
  3. You will be able to use all major credit cards or Momentum Dollars
