Join us this summer for the Annual Giant National Capital Barbecue Battle Virtual Experience!
The Giant National Capital Barbecue Battle has become one of the largest and most unique food & music festivals in the country, and this year, we’re going virtual!
Giant Food, the leading greater Washington D.C. regional grocery chain, announced that the 28th Annual Giant National Capital Barbecue Battle will be hosted virtually with free activities throughout the month of June. A proactive decision made by organizers to ensure the health and safety of participants, staff, suppliers, vendors and event beneficiaries, the new format creates a social engagement opportunity with interactive programming, cooking contests, cooking demonstrations, recipes, entertainment and more. The virtual event will benefit the USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore and the Capital Area Food Bank.
Be sure to check out USO-Metro’s Military Chef Cook-Off, where military chefs from each branch will be facing off to see which branch will be crowned victorious in prepping the best BBQ!
