GrillsGiving - A Celebration of Meat & Music


BBQ cook-off, live music at Mission County Park


Before you begin indulging in all of the turkey day fixins’ this year, make a preliminary pilgrimage to CPS Energy’s 4th annual GrillsGiving on Saturday, Nov. 17. Forgo the fat ol’ bird for a few days. Instead, prepare your paunch by savoring samples of brisket, chicken and ribs made by more than two dozen promising pitmaster teams.

This unique, family-friendly event in Mission County Park along the San Antonio River offers a festival-like atmosphere, including a searing barbecue cook-off, live music, kid activities and free parking! Net proceeds benefit the REAP (Residential Energy Assistance Partnership) fund.

Saturday, November 17
12 – 6pm
Mission County Park
6030 Padre Drive   MAP IT!
