Looking Gooood!

Kosher BBQ Festivals are about bringing the local community together and meeting new friends. But mostly it is about the food, and it is going to be amazing! We bring back the incredible beef ribs everyone enjoyed last year!

2018 Menu


The festival will bring back more exciting kids attractions: Climbing Wall, the challenging Adrenaline Rush obstacle course, kiddie inflatable, crafts by PJ Library as-well-as face painting and bubble making.

Challenging & Fun

We have the kids favorites.

Until 2018's BBQ
Buckeye Kosher’s BBQ Festival has been a phenomenal success since its inaugural event in 2015.

Last year (3rd Annual) brought a 60% higher sponsorship and volunteer participation with approximately 110 volunteers and over 40 sponsors. The event continues to attract a strong audience of close to 1,200 festival attendees.

We are planning for a bigger event this year. The festival will be grilling up some fun on Sunday, August 12, 2018 at the new central location of Capital University front lawn on Main Street.

The venue and set-up are perfect since it is walking distance for most of the community in Bexley.
