Great Northwest Barbecue and Beer Festival returns to Coeur d’Alene

UPDATED: Thu., July 12, 2018

The Great Northwest Barbecue and Beer Festival runs Friday through Sunday in Coeur d’Alene’s McEuen Park.

The fest, in its second year, features live music, food and craft beer. The event will also include a Kansas City Barbecue Society sanctioned masters’ barbecue competition, which will bring barbecue teams from throughout the region, including Canada, to CdA.

General admission tickets are $10. Children 12 and under get in free.

A portion of the proceeds will go to fund the K27 Forever Memorial in honor of Coeur d’Alene Police Sgt. Greg Moore, who was shot killed three years ago while investigating suspicious activity.

McEuen Park is at 420 E. Front Ave.

The fest runs from 4 to 9 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.
