Big Texas BBQ, presented by Champion Energy Services, TouchDown Club Of Dallas' annual appetizer and rib cookoff benefiting The Ashford Rise School of Dallas, will take place in Fair Park for the first time in 8 years. What started out as a friendly tailgate cookoff in an office parking lot has now grown into a fundraiser with up to 60 teams competing for Best Ribs, Appetizers and Best Tailgate judged by a panel of celebrity BBQ judges and a day of live music headlined by Texas Music icon Gary P. Nunn. Big Texas BBQ will also feature food trucks, a kids zone and a Kid's Bakeoff where the six classes from the Rise School will each create a dessert to pair with a selected ice cream from Howdy Homemade Ice Cream.
