Expect masterclasses from top BBQ and butcher cooking heroes (Noel "BBQ Jesus” Hassapladakis- the BBQ guru and The Tattooed Butcher), competitions, awesome pop-up restaurants, live music, award-winning street food, the best must-have BBQ equipment demonstrations, and our own boutique whiskey distillery and craft beer and cider ‘Fermentation Tent’. 

Bring the family along – kids under 10 are free!
