The 16th Annual Pork & Brew as seen on "The Cooking Channel's Carnival Eats" will return to the Santa Ana Star Center July 5 - 7. Bringing together the best barbecue vendors from around the region, this three-day festival featuring BBQ, beer, live music and interactive family activities will be one of the biggest events of the summer.
The 16th Annual Pork & Brew, hosted by Visit Rio Rancho, will feature an indoor/outdoor format, ensuring the many thousands of expected attendees can enjoy all the festival has to offer rain or shine. This is quite possibly the best way to kick off your 4th of July weekend this summer in New Mexico. No more "BBQ Bucks". Vendors now accept cash and credit cards for payment. Between chomps of fantastic BBQ, you can check out local arts and crafts, music and even take the kids for a face painting and a few trips through the bouncy houses. There will also be kid’s watermelon and adult pie eating contests twice daily.
