The Red and Blue BBQ Cook-Off started with one firefighter’s annual pig roast and his desire to support first responders. It soon turned into a large event involving a friendly competition of pitmasters, a head-to-head pig roast battle between North Metro Fire Rescue District and the Northglenn Police Department, a day of live music and fun festivities, and support for local charities.
The 1st Annual Red and Blue BBQ Cook-Off was held on June 23 outside Northglenn City Hall and was a huge success for its first year. We were able to donate over $8,500 to charities supporting first responders who have been killed or injured in the line of duty. Proceeds were split evenly between the Colorado Professional Firefighters Foundation and Colorado C.O.P.S.
Plans are already underway for the 2nd Annual Red and Blue BBQ Cook-Off to be held in early June 2019. If you are interested in participating in the cook-off or supporting the event as a sponsor, please email North Metro Fire's Public Information Officer Sara Farris or call 303-252-3017.
Our event wouldn't be a success if not for our generous sponsors, BBQ competitors and donors. Thank you!!
