'Cue Ball

With four punk/ska punk bands performing — Buck-O-Nine, Voodoo Glowskulls, Goldfinger, and headliner Face to Face — plus local acts on a separate stage, a custom bike show, and an all-ages kid-friendly hangout, more than just barbeque will cook under the hot sun at Chandler’s third annual Great American Barbeque and Beer Fest.

While the music plays, more than 50 vendors from across Arizona expect to dish out 10 tons of mouth-watering ribs, pulled pork, brisket, and chicken, plus all the fixin’s. SanTan Brewing Company leads a pack of AZ microbrewers serving suds to wash it all down.

Eating contests, including pie and bratwurst, are also on the menu. And speaking of gross out, don’t let Junior over indulge before rolling around inside a Wow Ball or it’s destined to become a Wow “did he really puke up all that barbeque?” Ball.
