Come celebrate Derby's 150th anniversary with the 2019 Smoke on the Plains Derby BBQ & Music Fest. Formerly known as just the Derby BBQ Festival, this three-day food and music event features the Kansas City BBQ Society Cook-off, Backyard BBQ Cook-Off, People’s Choice Contest and tons of fun, family-friendly events just south of Wichita, KS.
Don’t miss this finger-licking good time as barbecue is celebrated as its own food group at the Derby BBQ & Music Festival in Derby KS.
New this year - catch bands like Paramount, The Haymakers, Morrison County and Mountain Deer Revival. Families can enjoy a carnival opening June 6, 2019 for the first time this year. $25 wristbands will be available for each session.
The event is free to attend, but patrons can purchase a barbecue tasting kit for $5 each.
All proceeds benefit the McConnell Air Force Base Airman and Family Readiness Center.
