It’s so wonderful to see barbecue festivals popping up with dates nationwide in 2021, but I had no idea that something so killer was brewing in Missouri.
One of THE nicest guys in the barbecue world, Tyler Harp, is putting on the Harp Barbecue Festival featuring Harp Barbecue and an immensely talented group of friends from BBQ world from across the United States. The event will be coming to The Uptown Pavilion in Independence, Missouri on Saturday July 17th from 6PM – 10PM. True to Tyler’s form, this festival will benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Tickets go on sale Wednesday June 23rd HERE and will sell out quickly.
