One of the largest barbecue competitions in Oklahoma, the Bixby BBQ 'n Blues Festival features two days of mouthwatering barbecue and great music. Head to Washington Irving Park to witness 75 barbecue teams from Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Texas compete for the top prize and enjoy live blues music by local bands. 

Visitors to this annual festival will enjoy free cooking demos, delicious barbecue entries and a wide variety of fair food. Make sure to take part in the People's Choice barbecue competition on Saturday, when barbecue entries are judged by festival-goers who purchase a People's Choice Award taster kit. 

Bring your kids to the festival's popular Kids Zone, where they can enjoy numerous inflatable jumpers for a small fee per child. Young ones can also stretch their skills during the Kid's-Q, where children ages 6 to 15 will compete to win best barbecue.

Come for the barbecue and stay for the great live blues music. Nashville's John Nemeth takes the festival stage on Friday, while The Dylan Whitney Band closes out the event on Saturday night.
