(Press Release from Amerian Royal)

Get ready for a smoky finish to the summer. We’re excited to announce the American Royal World Series of Barbecue® will be held Labor Day weekend at the Kansas Speedway.

Last year was an incredible success. Over 40,000 of you joined us for Friday night’s festivities and we achieved record-setting attendance for the weekend overall. For the nation’s premiere BBQ competition, the new event weekend places the World Series of Barbecue in the middle of the competitive barbecue season for hundreds of elite barbecue teams on the circuit.

This signature Kansas City event is getting a fresh feel with more public events and activities than ever, including incredible live music, delicious BBQ and local food, a full line up of kids activities, and a vendor fair authentic to Kansas City and BBQ enthusiasts.

Close out your summer the best way Kansas City knows how: with friends, family, great food and drink, and a cloud of smoke rising over the party.

The Barbecue is the place to be Labor Day weekend. And an unforgettable way to kick off the American Royal season.

So mark your calendars. Tell your friends. And stay tuned to our website for more details.

See you at the Speedway!
