Smoke Out Hunger is back for 2019!

Des Moines’ premier BBQ event is back on Sunday, July 28, 2019! Enjoy all the BBQ you can eat from a smoke-tastic lineup of local pitmasters and restaurants (including some unique vegetarian BBQ options!). Pair your BBQ samplings with refreshing craft beers — all at no cost past the ticket price! Round out your Smoke Out Hunger experience with live music, lawn games, and picnic table board games. All proceeds benefit Food Bank of Iowa’s work to end hunger in Iowa! Kids 6-12 have a reduced price ticket, and kids 5 and under get in free.

Enjoy Central Iowa’s Best BBQ!
