Denver7 is proud to partner with the city of Aurora to present the 3rd annual Buskers, Brews & BBQ event on Saturday, June 8 from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. at the Aurora Municipal Center.

Buskers, Brews & BBQ is a celebration of all things barbecue, beer and entertainment with live musical performances and quirky street performers.

This year, nearly 30 teams from across the country will travel to Aurora to compete and prepare succulent barbecue for attendees to sample. Many of the teams competing are nationally ranked. Teams compete in categories based on the type of meat they are preparing-chicken, pork, ribs and brisket.

“We are really blown away by the response from teams competing this year” said Josh Sturm, event coordinator with the City of Aurora. “This is by far our largest pool of barbecue teams ever for this event. It’s highly competitive-which in turn makes for an incredible selection of barbecue.”

In addition to the drool-worthy barbecue samples available for purchase, Dry Dock Brewery will be serving fan favorite beers throughout the event for $5 per can.

Buskers will be performing throughout the day entertaining attendees using a wide variety of street acts such as magicians, stilt walkers, jugglers and more. Guests can watch a man swallow a sword while also enjoying the tastes of world-renowned barbecue and ice-cold beer.

The event is free along with parking, admission and activities including inflatables, a caricature artist, face painters, aerial artists, stage entertainment and more.

Eventgoers should come to the event hungry – in addition to the barbecue, many food truck vendors will also be on site selling a wide array of food items ranging from savory to sweet.
