Wine Country Big Q is Northern California's premier Barbecue Festival and Competition! BBQ Teams and Pitmasters travel from across the West Coast to join us, competing for cash prizes and points to qualify for the big daddy competitions like the Jack Daniel’s World Championship and the Kansas City Royal. Wine Country Big Q is a one day festival that includes barbecue tasting, live music, beer, wine, and cider.
We invite you to join us in The Bull Pen, our VIP Tent, for spirits tasting. Pour sample tastes of your spirits to our VIP guests (we anticipate between 250 and 300 VIP guests). The ABC permits sampling spirits at Festivals like ours, and we will have the appropriate daily license ABC-221. This is a great place to showcase your products this summer, to a crowd that is your target customers.
We invite you to pour during the entire event from 1 pm to 5 pm, or you could pour for just one hour in the VIP Tent.
Wine Country Big Q also offers educational seminars throughout the event, and there are opportunities for spirit producers to join us as a part of these demonstrations. Please note below if you would like to be considered for one of these opportunities.
Wine Country Big Q will provide a space within The Bull Pen (VIP tent). Please provide your own table cloth and decor for your table. Each guest will receive a tasting glass with entry. If you choose to sample from smaller cups, please provide. Directions and additional information will be sent to you prior to the Festival. Each participating business will receive two passes for pouring staff plus barbecue sampling tickets.
All production rights, videotaping, photography or other method of capturing images or sound remain exclusively with Wine Country Big Q and it's agents.
