Event: Great American Barbeque & Beer Festival

Celebrating a decade of delicious family fun in Downtown Chandler, HDE Agency is thrilled to announce that iHeartMedia Phoenix’s 102.5 KNIX is now the official title sponsor of the Great American Barbeque & Beer Festival, taking place on Saturday, March 30, 2019 at Dr. AJ Chandler Park in Arizona.

With the support of 102.5 KNIX, the festival will feature country music on dual stages across the main lawn for continuous live performances throughout the day. The lineup includes a variety of top country music superstars, including Russell Dickerson, Dylan Scott, Jimmie Allen and Riley Green.

“KNIX has been a longtime supporter of the Great American Barbeque and Beer Festival,” said Steve Geofferies, Senior Vice President of Programming for iHeartMedia. “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with HDE Agency for the 10th anniversary of Arizona’s largest food and music event. Nothing goes better with Que and beer than country music.”

New additions for the 10th anniversary include a family friendly expanded VIP zone, petting zoo, carnival and more interactive experiences. For the first time, the VIP zone will be expanding to include guests of all ages and VIP upgrades will be available day of onsite. With the addition of a second stage on the main lawn, the VIP zone will span across the grass between the two stages. In addition, fan favorite activities will be returning, such as the brat, wing, rib and pie eating competitions.

“It’s hard to believe that we’re celebrating 10 years in Downtown Chandler,” said Landon Evans, Event Coordinator, HDE Agency. “This event started as a small BBQ throwdown and has grown to be Arizona’s largest BBQ festival, drawing crowds from across the country by the thousands. Now, with the help of KNIX, 2019 will be extra special with amazing country music.”
