JULY 5 - 7, 2019

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 will feature BBQ, beer, live music and interactive family and adult activities.  With a water slide to fun jumps of all kinds from Amazing Jumps.  This will be one of the biggest events of the summer.

The 16th Annual Pork & Brew, hosted by Visit Rio Rancho, features 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.

Between chomps of fantastic BBQ, fair foods and sweets, you can check out local arts and crafts, music and even take the kids for a face painting, petting zoo and a few trips through the fun jumps. There will also be kid’s watermelon and adult pie eating contests twice daily.
