The frustrating elements of weather and other unforeseen situations can often limit our sense of pride in the USA. However, that does not stop the efforts of one organization that refuses to surrender to the COVID-19 pandemic. One particular American tradition is upholding that spirit through going viral itself to fight against this growing epidemic. The Giant National Capital BBQ of Washington, DC will take their event to the next level and go online via live-streaming this June. Instead of 100,000 visitors gathering at our capital, they will be joining in from their home via live stream.
In full support of their efforts, we are helping to spread the news by providing you with the latest information. This bold and impressive month-long BBQ Battle will be an amazing virtual experience that includes fun for the whole family. Here are the latest details for their Live BBQ event that will include free activities for everyone.
Who is behind this incredible event?
Giant Food is the main sponsor of the Giant National Capital BBQ Battle, now celebrating its 28th?year holding this festival. It?s held in downtown Washington DC along the historic Pennsylvania Avenue every year in late June. For those who don’t know, Giant Food is the largest supermarket chain serving Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and the DC area. With over 163 supermarket locations they have combined convenience and customer service in many of their stores.
They are a proud supporter of USO-Metro raising hundreds of thousands of dollars every year through private and public donations. From their event, the showdown of the Nations’s top BBQ challengers shows their BBQ skills in several cook-off contests. This year their 2-day festival is now a month-long exhibition that takes BBQ into a virtual online world stage.
What can we expect to see this year?
An impressive line-up has been slowly building to showcase the finest BBQ Pitmasters. They are not only showing-off their grilling skills, but their finished delicacies will also help benefit those who are home viewers. Raising money for the Capital Area Food Bank and the USO-Metro, they have added a BBQ Feast package. Within their website, they have added a special App that allows residents to purchase BBQ Feast packages. This allows families to have fresh BBQ dishes delivered to their homes to combat the COVID-19 restrictions.
They will also daily feature live cooking demonstrations filled with grilling tips and tricks from participating BBQ professionals. Learn all the latest recipes and directly from BBQ legends and top Pitmasters from all across the Nation. You’ll also have no shortage of grill-off contests featuring interactive prizes, shopping sprees, and chances to enter your BBQ recipes. All contests will allow live voting where you can select and judge your favorite BBQ dishes. Every day will offer something different for those who love BBQ with a passion.
Of course, the wide selection of music with the BBQ Battle of the Bands is brought back bigger than ever. There will be two separate music stages with a third being added by popular demand. Have a daily dose of past favorites and all new entries from all across the country.
You and your family can enjoy live music covering jazz and blues, rock and reggae, and R & B music categories. Not to forget they have also added an interactive Giant Kids Zone. There will be plenty of games and activities to keep your family busy all day long.
There will also be an expanded Giant Corks to Caps virtual experience that covers wine and beer topics. Learn about wine pairing and expert tasting tips while beer enthusiasts can have the latest info about new beer varieties.
Why this BBQ event is bigger than ever?
As a proud sponsor of the USO-Metro and military families, Giant Food has been effortless in its support. Those who register to view this unique event will have the opportunity to donate through a digital payment online. As this is the first time in our recent history that a pandemic is an unseen enemy, timing is everything. This is why an entire month is devoted to raising awareness to fight COVID-19 while safely keeping social distancing. Giant Food also is exclusively handling all the BBQ Feast food delivery in addition to their standard supermarket delivery.
It’s especially helpful to the residents and families within our Nations’s capital and surrounding States. There is still plenty of time to register to be part of this event before it begins. Their website adds new information every day so viewers can plan weekly events with all of your family.
