We expected there to be a lot of breweries and a lot of BBQ vendors. It instead there were like 3 breweries and 4 BBQ vendors. And, the BBQ vendors weren't even the ones in the competition. We were hoping for the opportunity to sample the meat in the competition and be able to take part/see the judging. That was not the case. We stayed for about an hour. The beer and Food that was there was good.

Great idea but not much available. It was difficult to figure out the layout because boots were all over the place including where people were camping. Very confusing! No seating and very few tables so you had to juggle your drink and the small sample with a fork using your two hands.

Had a party of 6 with me, when we arrived there where teenagers charging for parking. We parked & no one knew how to direct us around the "event" the MC was trying too hard, & the workers looked at us weird when we asked where to go &what to do. The worst part is most the food was sold out! It was only 1pm! We drove 30 minutes to eat nachos &pay a lot for scraps & beer. Only plus side the music.

Great festival held in the shade! All vendors are under the covered roof of the horse arenas! Cool and comfy. Great sampling of all types of BBQ including some desserts! I highly recommend!

Only a couple of beer vendors and beers(16oz no samples unless VIP) were too expensive $7.00 domestic and $8.00 premium. Ended up going to Texas Road House and drank 20oz 805s' for $5.50. The previous years were fun but obviously greed was a factor this year.. it want that crowded as the previous years so this year will be ourlast

Was so happy to have a mostly covered event. Vendors and entertainment were great! First time at event, but we'll be back again.

You pay for admission and get nothing but the chance to pay for everything else! I should have complained and told them I wanted my money back. $5 for parking and whatever I paid to get in to find nothing but more vendors. The music was the only thing that I didn't get asked to pay for. Really a lame event. Even a local brewery didn't show up and I cannot imagine why because it's not like they were giving beer away unless they just knew people would be mad. This was our first and last time ever going to an event in Norco. Exit was also priority entrance. The kid I paid for parking could NOT even tell me where handicapped parking was. Just a total disaster. NO WONDER no one from the event would answer my email questions, they knew I would have asked for a refund before we wasted the time driving there!!!

You had to purchase tickets to obtain sampled of bbq. You could not use tickets on anything else. I did not see any brew samples. I did not see where to purchase tickets for BBQ samples. The vendoes to took cash. There was a vendor for funeral services. This was very organized.
