Derby BBQ & Music Festival

Don’t miss this finger-licking good time as barbecue is celebrated as its own food group at the Derby BBQ & Music Festival.

Formerly known as the Derby BBQ Festival, this two-day food and music event is Derby's largest event and 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.

The event is free to attend. Patrons can participate in the People's Choice Contest by purchasing a barbecue tasting kit for $5 each, including eight servings of competition-quality pulled pork.

All proceeds benefit the McConnell Air Force Base Airman and Family Readiness Center.
