Grillfest > Burgers. Beer. BBQ.

The 9th annual Grillfest is still up to bat at CHS Field—just a little farther down the lineup. We will return in June 2021, and we have that much more time to get excited about the hottest grills, recipes, barbecue techniques, burgers, beer, and more that the Twin Cities could ever pack into one weekend-long, all-inclusive event. It’s the same event you’ve come to know and love—at the same location, with the same hours, boasting the same caliber of excellence (and bold flavor) that you deserve.

June 26 & 27, 2021 

1 pm – 5 pm each day



Join us at the 9th Annual Minnesota Monthly GrillFest!

Taste your way through your favorite grilled foods and sample wines and specialty beers. Test out the hottest grills, gather recipes, and learn how to barbecue like a pro.

Every GrillFest features the latest grilling tips at the grilling stage and special pricing on grills and products that will make you the envy of your neighbors. Tickets to GrillFest include samples of food and beverage from all of our great vendors.
