3rd Annual
BBQ Festival

August 20, 2017 3-7 pm
Great event
Thank you all for making it a success!


Our Pit Master is working up something special. We will be announcing the complete menu the first week in August, but expect some of the best smoked ribs in central Ohio.

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!

The festival will bring back more exciting kids attractions: Climbing Wall, the challenging Adrenaline Rush obstetrical 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 (2nd 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 1,000 festival attendees.

We are planning for a bigger event this year. The festival will be grilling up some fun on Sunday, August 20, 2017 back to our first year’s location, Pump House Park on E. Main St and Alum Creek Dr.

The venue and set-up were so perfect that we returned to the park which is walking distance for most of the community in Bexley.
