Lake Havasu Music Brews & BBQ Championship is proud to be the Third event for KCBS in the U.S. each year, and the First event in the West early in the season. KCBS has found that our combination of Date, “GREAT” Weather early on in the year and Location makes us a Very Desirable event to many participants in January. During our first event in 2010 we drew over Seventy Professional Barbecue Teams from 22 states. This year (2012) we increased our overall total of teams to over Eighty Four (84) Pro Comp Teams, which has earned Lake Havasu the recognition of being the Largest KCBS Sanctioned BBQ Event in Arizona.
We are Qualifiers for the American Royale, Jack Daniels Invitational, Chest-to-Chest National Brisket Championship & a RMBBQA (Rocky Mtn. BBQ Assoc.) Cup Event. This coming year (2014) we have again set high goals for our event, but in order to achieve these goals we will again need our past Sponsorship Partners and New Ones Alike. Our goal is to get over 100 Pro Comp BBQ Teams to compete annually in Lake Havasu’s Music Brews & BBQ Event. Increasing the prize fund to maintain levels that match that of other competitions while keeping the team entry cost to a minimum is paramount in attracting the higher number of teams to the city.
We have continued to visit events in many other states in an attempt to keep up with all current activities provided by other events, and have met with over 350 Pro Comp BBQ teams and their members. Plus we have talked to an additional 500 CBJ’s (Certified Barbecue Judges), which have produced more than 700 out of area visitors that participate annually during our event. This also helps us in drawing the more than 75,000 attendees over the past five years to Lake Havasu City. Lake Havasu Music Brews & BBQ Championship continues to be one of the Largest Major Fundraising Events for our Local Communities 501 c 3 organizations and charities.
