The Ceres Chamber of Commerce proudly announces our 5th Annual Ceres Bands, Brews & BBQ Throwdown to be held Friday & Saturday, August 10 and 11, 2018 in our city’s beautifully revitalized Downtown area.
The Ceres Bands, Brews & BBQ Throwdown event is a sanctioned Kansas City Barbecue Society “State Championship” qualifying event, as well as a Team of the Year (TOY) event for the California BBQ Association. This year we expect to host 30-40 BBQ Teams from all over California who will be competing in what is now recognized in the Central Valley as a “successful and must attend event.”
Contingent on a 25-team PRO field, this year's PRO Division Grand Champion may receive an automatic entry to the American Royal World Series of Barbecue® Invitational Contest. As always, this year's American Royal will host some of the most talented teams from across the world.
Also contingent on the minimum field, the GC may be placed into a draw for the Jack Daniel's World Championship Invitational Barbecue later this year.
