Miami weather is great year round, but in March, thatâ€™s when we start grilling. To kick off the season, Grillinâ€™ in the Grove, a family friendly event with activities for all ages, will tempt your taste buds with a myriad of BBQ offerings ranging from American styles to international. Whether youâ€™re itching for some Memphis, Texas or Kansas City barbecue or the well known Brazilian Churrasco and Argentine Parrillada, Grillinâ€™ in the Grove will have it all.
Bring a lawn chair and umbrella to enjoy the barbecue prepared by a variety of local restaurants, while listening to live music. The price of food will vary depending on the vendor, but the event is free for kids 12 and under. In addition, all the rides at the Family Fun Zone will be complimentary. The adults can head over to The Pit, a pop-up sports bar offering liquor and flat screens for the sports fanatic in all of us.
What would a festival be without some friendly competition?! Grillinâ€™ in the Grove has lined up two contests. The Best Backyard Burger, aimed at all the home-grillers out there, and The Greatest Grill contest geared towards restaurants, that will battle it out for the festivalâ€™s first place bragging rights. Festival goers can also check out one of six cooking workshops hosted by the festival, where expert chefs will cover a BBQ specialty. Not only will they be available for a Q&A session after the workshop, but lucky members of the audience will get to taste their wonderful creations. Seating is limited, so get to these workshops early.
