Mark your calendars for Sept. 8 and 9 for the Derby BBQ Festival at High Park, 2801 E. James. Join us Friday night for the Kickoff, which includes the new Kid's Q event, live music, food trucks, and adult beverages. This is a free event open to the entire family.

The Kid's Q will feature two age categories for kids 15 and under who will cook hamburger and chicken on a charcoal grill. The meat and grill will be provided.

On Saturday, Sept. 9, the 7th Annual Derby BBQ Festival, presented by Security 1st Title, will include the KCBS (Kansas City BBQ Society) Cook-off, Fidelity Bank Backyard BBQ Cook-off, Verus Bank and Creekstone Farms People's Choice Contest, Bumper to Bumper Rods-N-Ribs Charity Car Show, food trucks, Derby Noon Lions Club Beer Garden, live music by Last Great Summer (alternative rock) and Haven Alexandra (country/folk). Kids can enjoy the BRG Precision Products Petting Zoo, inflatables, magician, face painters, Princess Pros Entertainment and more.

New in 2017 is the Anything on a Stick Contest (dessert and non-dessert categories) held on Sept. 9. This contest is open to the public.
