We’re all about food, fun and friends – and we’re in a new location this year at the Elkhart County Fairgrounds in Goshen! Wristbands are priced at $75 and includes all your food, drink and entertainment for the evening. Designated drivers get in for $40, students are $20 and children under 12 are admitted free. BBQ & Brew Fest has something for everyone!

Four adults enjoying hamburgers.


You’ll taste burgers prepared by local teams representing businesses and organizations from around the county. We also have craft beer by local brewers and other drinks at our full-service open bar.


Bring the kids and let them enjoy our child-safe, alcohol-free zone that’s filled with activities to keep them occupied and run by our dedicated Club staff! Later in the evening, we’ll be showing a kid-friendly movie on a big screen as they relax on the grass. If you’re feeling a little adventurous, try your hand at axe throwing.


Bring your friends and relax while listening to live music from Blammo and The 1985.


Local grill teams will be competing for the title of “2023 Grill Master.”

YOU get to choose which burger is the “Fan Favorite” by casting votes while helping raise money to support Boys & Girls Clubs of Elkhart County. A panel of local judges will determine the “Judge’s Favorite.”


BBQ & Brew Fest supports Boys & Girls Clubs of Elkhart County and we couldn’t put on this event without the help of our great community partners! With multiple levels of opportunity, our event sponsors help make BBQ & Brew Fest a success.
