The Smokin’ Q Classic is an official Kansas City BBQ Society sanctioned event. Teams compete for prize money and trophies.

Hosted by the Vista Village Business Association, BBQ teams descend on Historic Downtown Vista on Friday afternoon to spend up to 24 hours seasoning, smoking, and grilling their choice cut of meats for competition day. Judges come from states near and far to find out whose BBQ is the best of the best. Our 2013 Teams will compete for a guaranteed $10,000 of prize money, KCBS points and trophies. If team participation exceeds 60 or more teams, the Smokin’ Q Classic will award $12,500 in prize money.

There is something for everyone at the Smokin’ Q Classic! Featured at the Smokin’ Q Classic are 2 oz BBQ Tastes for purchase, a street fair, live entertainment, a refreshing beer garden, and the Second Annual Blazin’ Bike Show.

BBQ Meat n’ Greet Date: Friday, August 2nd Time: 5 pm – 8 pm The public is invited on Friday night to a “BBQ Meat n’ Greet“ to meet our teams first hand and see how they cook up their delectable meats for the following day’s competition. This is a great time to see what goes into competition BBQ and enjoy the downtown area on a Friday night. BBQ Tastes will not be available until Saturday starting at Noon. Featured at the “BBQ Meat n’ Greet” is a local business sidewalk sale with special discounts and live music on the main stage.

Second Annual Blazin’ Bike Show Date: Saturday, August 3rd Time: 12 pm – 4 pm

What kind of Bike do you sport? And do you think it is good enough to win you an award? With 15 trophies to be given away, we are looking for motorcycles from around the county to participate from Backyard Builds to Vintage Rides. Bikes and BBQ never looked so good. See the application for registration information.
