BBQ for Blue

Barbecue for Blue is our annual fundraising event that is filled with good company, great music, and an even greater cause. Proceeds raised from this event go directly to our various scholarship and memorial funds. 

About the BBQ

The first BBQ for Blue was in August of 2015. It was started to raise money to fund our postage fund – the money we would use to mail out the thank you cards. The first BBQ consisted of a lunch with pulled pork, a small silent auction, and a visit from Miss Minnesota.

Since then, we’ve launched our various scholarship programs and the events are now used to fund those programs. Our BBQ has scaled from a small event at Baylor Park in Watertown, MN to a huge event that’s hosted acts including, The Fabulous Armadillos, Chris Hawkey, and most recently Jesse Becker and the Plott Hounds. 

The BBQ for Blue is our biggest event of the year and it’s always a ton of fun. You won’t want to miss it!


This year, our show is being headlined by Chris Kroeze, season 15 runner-up of NBC’s The Voice! G.B. Leighton will be playing with Chris! 

As always we will have a Barbecue with delicious food provided by the Watertown Lions club, a silent auction, and yard games before the show!
