Philadelphia, PA - Come one, come all, to a summertime staple – the county fair. Take a stab at line dancing, sample Budweiser Freedom Reserve Lager with George and Martha Washington, play corn hole and board games, and stay for the classic pairing of Maker’s Mark Bourbon and Barbeque.
The All-American BBQ at Dilworth Park, free and open to the public, from Wednesday, June 20, to Sunday, June 24, features games, grilling, crafts, live music and hot DJs, powered by Live Nation. The five-day, red-white-and-blue festival will offer activities for all ages.
Dress up your four-legged friends on Saturday, June 23 for a patriotic pooch pet costume contest for a chance to win a brand new Bud Light gas grill. All day, we’ll take pictures of well-dressed dogs and the audience will vote on the best red, white, and blue ensemble. Compete in a watermelon- eating contest for a chance to win a grill set and swag, courtesy of Budweiser, along with the right to brag.
The event is free to enter and to participate in games and activities; pay as you go for food and beverage. New this year, Brûlée Catering will feature traditional county fair favorites for purchase, including the famous deep-fried double Stuf Oreos and other sweets, and shaved ice, available spiked with Beam Suntory spirits. Chefs turn the park into a BBQ pit grilling pulled pork sandwiches with broccoli slaw and Maker’s Mark Bourbon mustard; house pulled chicken sandwich with hot honey bbq sauce and charred red onions; smoked BBQ wings with jalapeno pickled celery; a smokehouse burger, and roasted radish salad. Sides will include smoked mac & cheese, loaded potato salad, house-fried BBQ chips and roasted corn on the cob featuring Maker’s Mark bourbon butter.
Stop in the Bud Light Beer Garden or try a handmade cocktail, featuring Maker’s Mark Bourbon. All ages may enter the beer garden area, but must present ID and be 21 or over to consume alcoholic beverages.
