About Southwest Kosher BBQ Festival

The inaugural Southwest Kosher BBQ Festival will be held March 3, 2019 to celebrate the joys of a BBQ competition and make it accessible to those who keep kosher. This will be a fun event for everyone of any faith or observance level. Kosher dietary laws will be observed, and the event will be supervised by the Greater Phoenix Vaad Hakashruth.
