Giant National Capital Barbecue Battle

Washington's tastiest summer celebration pays tribute to everything barbecue and truly embodies the best that America has to offer.

Daily, Jun 24, 2023 - Jun 25, 2023.

Everyone's favorite barbecue-flavored event has been held in DC for more than 30 years. Pitmasters from all 50 states, local restaurants and live music shut down Pennsylvania Avenue between 3rd and 7th streets NW for a lively, two-day street party. Cooking demos and free tastings make for a savory (and filling) experience.
