The Fresno County Historical Society is excited to host the Central Valley's premiere barbeque competition to be held on September 24, 2022 from 11AM to 9PM. The Great Kearney BBQ Smoke Out is a KCBS-sanctioned Master Series event. Over 2,000 guests are expected to attend this inaugural event.
This event features a full day of mouth-watering BBQ along with side dishes and desserts that showcase the bounty of the Valley. We anticipate more than 30 competitors from around the country and many more from right here in Fresno County. All will be competing for a prize purse of $8,000, awarded over four categories and a Grand Champion.
Guests will see professionals and amateurs at work on the grill, feast on BBQ and all the fixings along with beer and wine tastings all while watching live music and enjoying a stroll through our Fields of Fresno - A Century in the Soil outdoor agriculture exhibition; all presented in the lush shade of historic Kearney Park.
The proceeds of this event will directly benefit the mission of the Fresno County Historical Society.
