LOCAL’S GUIDE | FRISCO BBQ CHALLENGE 2017

Jun 13, 2017 // Grace Hernden

This year’s 3-day celebration of meat (Thursday, June 15 through Saturday, June 17) features over 70 BBQers, 7 bands, pig races, the Breckenridge Distillery whiskey tour, the Bacon Burner 6k and much more. Please stop by the Frisco office at 400 Main Street for a cold beverage, snacks and a seat on our patio. We’d love to see you there!

Local’s tip: Save yourself some time and frustration and park in the Summit Middle School parking lot – located at 158 School Road. The free shuttle bus runs all day during the event and will take you directly between your vehicle and the action on Main Street. The Summit Stage also offers free bus service around Summit County and Frisco.
