Adding to the excitement, the Freedom SkyDive Jump will feature skilled skydivers flying over the event grounds with an American flag to celebrate the Independence Day weekend.

The real star of the show is the prestigious BBQ cook-off, where the 2024 BBQ Champion will be crowned. BBQ enthusiasts from across the state will showcase their skills, competing in categories including chicken, ribs, brisket, and rib eye steak. The grand champion will earn a coveted ticket to the 2025 American Royal, the world’s largest championship BBQ cook-off, along with a $20,000 purse.
