Downtown Throwdown BBQ & Brewfest

  • Bicentiennial Park 201 3rd Street Parkersburg, WV 26101 (map)

Our premier fall event in downtown Parkersburg has quickly become the Downtown Throwdown BBQ & Brewfest. Our Brewfest features many of West Virginia’s craft beers. Attendees will have the option to purchase various BBQ and other food items from their choice of food vendors. Most vendors accept cash only, but there are ATM’s in the vicinity of the event. Towards the end of the evening, attendees are encourage to cast their vote for the favorite BBQ item in the ballot box at the main gate. At the end of the night, our winner will be announced and receive their award. This event is made possible with the support of the Parkersburg Jaycees and other sponsors. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the gate. Childern 13 yrs. and older are the same price as adult admission price and kids 12 and under are free. 

This year's entertainment will be two local favorites: Back Porch Alibi and Hit Parade
