The LA Beer and World BBQ Festival is bringing together the diversity of Los Angeles around the grill! Top BBQ masters will be taking over this Saturday and firing up their grills to bring you the juiciest, most delicious recipes. Family recipes mixed with their expertise niche will go into the ingredients and flavors of the meats and dishes that you can witness firsthand.

The festival won’t be your typical BBQ festival or even the kind of restaurants you’d find in the South where you think to experience the best BBQ. Besides Classic Texas-style BBQ, chefs from Chinese, Filipino and Armenian origins bring their culinary heritage this Saturday which embodies the diversity that Los Angeles is known best for. There is even a Vegetarian vendor! I guess you can call it the “world cup” but for BBQ!

Grab an entry ticket for only $15 or $42 which includes 1 drink and tastings from 3 different stations. It’s the perfect place to go this weekend with friends and family. Taste everything while enjoying music, games, an art installation, and plenty of flavorful drinks.
