Colorado BBQ Challenge

Summit Stage free bus

Directions & Parking

Directions to the Frisco BBQ Challenge from Interstate 70

Take I-70 to exits #201 or #203 and woo hoo!  You’re in Frisco. We suggest you immediately make your way to our large free parking lot at the Summit Middle School at 158 School Road. See below for the lowdown on this convenient parking option.


Don’t spend unnecessary time driving around side streets trying to find parking.  Take a bus from our free lot thanks to support from the Summit Stage and Copper Mountain!  We HIGHLY encourage those attending our event to park in the Summit Middle School parking lot- Colorado BBQ Challenge Map (located at 158 School Road in Frisco, CO  80443) and take a shuttle bus into the event on Main Street.  The shuttle bus runs all day during the event hours, and will take you directly between your vehicle and the action on Main Street.

Free Middle School parking lot shuttle buses will run:

  • Friday 11:00am – 9:30pm
  • Saturday 10:00am – 6:30pm

Additional parking is located on the side streets surrounding the BBQ Challenge event site, but fill very quickly.

  • Please be careful not to block private driveways when parking.
  • Parking is not allowed on Town right-of-ways between 2:00am and 6:00am in the Town of Frisco.
  • If you are unable to drive because of impairment, please call Summit County Dispatch at 970-668-8600 to report the location of your car and how long it may be there.

Local Transportation

The Summit Stage offers free bus service around Summit County and Frisco serves as a hub for this service.  Grab a hard copy of the bus schedule at the Frisco/Copper Information Center located at the corner of 3rd Avenue & Main Street.

Bike to BBQ

Pedal your way to BBQ bliss and use the bicycle racks located at the Frisco Historic Park, Visitor Information Center and other locations around town.  The Recreation Path boasts 55 miles of biking/walking/running fun and is a great way to get to the BBQ from neighboring towns as well!
