BBQ for Blue

Barbecue for Blue is our annual fundraising event that is filled with good company, great music, and an even greater cause. Proceeds raised from this event go directly to our various scholarship and memorial funds. 

About the BBQ

The first BBQ for Blue was in August of 2015. It was started to raise money to fund our postage fund – the money we would use to mail out the thank you cards. The first BBQ consisted of a lunch with pulled pork, a small silent auction, and a visit from Miss Minnesota.

Since then, we’ve launched our various scholarship programs and the events are now used to fund those programs. Our BBQ has scaled from a small event at Baylor Park in Watertown, MN to a huge event that’s hosted acts including, The Fabulous Armadillos, Chris Hawkey, and most recently Jesse Becker and the Plott Hounds. 

The BBQ for Blue is our biggest event of the year and it’s always a ton of fun. You won’t want to miss it!


We are still working out all the details for the 2019 BBQ for Blue, but we can tell you that since it is our 5th annual BBQ, it’s going to be bigger and better than ever! 


The 2019 BBQ for Blue is August 3, 2019.


The exact location of the 2019 Barbecue for Blue will be announced in the summer of 2019.
