The Mohegan Sun BBQ Fest is a New England Tradition

Tomorrow and Sunday, visit one of the summer’s highlights at Mohegan Sun with Mohegan Sun BBQ Fest, a New England Tradition. At the Sun BBQ Fest, you can savor tasting some of the best barbecue around. As in previous years, the festivities will feature live music, a beer trailer, barbecue battles, and so much more. As a matter of fact, it has become a tradition in New England.

Some of the many vendors.

I have attended every year, and I’ve never been disappointed. Visitors from all over New England and New York take part in a tradition of enjoying great BBQ as BBQ Fest veteran. My favorites at the Mohegan BBQ Fest include: 1) sampling all the BBQ, eating candied bacon, choosing one of Dora’s Gourmet Cupcakes, enjoying homemade Birch Beer, and listening to the great live music.  Oh, BTW, the fireworks “ain’t too shabby” either (actually, they’re spectacular.)

Please Note:

  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.
