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, 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 (600 words or less) 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 a condo in Frisco over BBQ weekend (courtesy of Summit Mountain Rentals), $200 in Hogbacks and some Frisco BBQ schwag!

The submission period for the 2019 Father’s Day Essay Contest is closed. The winner will be notified no later than Friday, May, 17, 2019.
