About Blues, Bandits and BBQ

Blues, Bandits and BBQ is an annual BBQ competition and Blues festival held in Oak Cliff.

We kick off this event each year with a great music lineup with a nod to Oak Cliff’s history, as this is the birthplace of legends like Stevie Ray Vaughan and T-Bone Walker.

BBQ tasting and voting will follow, with competition winners announced later in the evening. Attendees can purchase a
wristband which includes their samples of the teams’ barbecue, but it also includes one coveted vote in the People’s Choice Competition...

Not eating? Blues, Bandits, and BBQ is free for the public to attend. Vegetarians, as well as well-behaved pets and kids, are welcome!
