Colorado BBQ Challenge

Father's Day Essay Contest


Dads hold a special place in our hearts because the Colorado BBQ Challenge is held on Father’s Day weekend each year, and 2019 is no different. The 26th Annual Colorado BBQ Challenge is on Friday, June 14, 2019 and Saturday, June, 15, 2019 with a kick-off concert on Thursday, June 13, 2019. The Colorado BBQ Challenge serves as a perfect getaway to show dads that we know he wants more than a new tie. Instead, he could be enjoying great BBQ, tickets to the Whiskey Tour and of course, tons of family fun up and down Frisco’s Main Street.

Each year, the Town of Frisco asks kids (16 and younger only) to submit a short essay describing how much dad means to you. If your essay is chosen as the winner, you will win some serious BBQ goodies: a two night stay in Frisco over BBQ weekend, two tickets to the Whiskey Tour, $100 in Hogbacks and some Frisco BBQ schwag!

The Father’s Day Essay Contest for the 26th Colorado BBQ Challenge will open in late winter 2019.
