Our premier fall event in downtown Parkersburg has quickly become the Downtown Throwdown BBQ & Brewfest. Our Brewfest features many of West Virginia’s craft beers. Attendees will have the option to purchase various BBQ and other food items from their choice of food vendors. Most vendors accept cash only, but there are ATM’s in the vicinity of the event. Towards the end of the evening, attendees are encouraged to cast their vote for the favorite BBQ item in the ballot box at the main gate. At the end, our winner will be announced and receive their award. 

Local entertainment by Back Porch Alibi and Hit Parade provides this event with the atmosphere to sit back, relax and enjoy the evening with friends and neighbors. 

This event is made possible with the support of the Parkersburg Jaycees and other sponsors.

Tickets will be sold in advance for $15; at the door, they will be $20. Your ticket will admit you to the event, a free pilsner glass and your first drink and live entertainment! (Soft drinks and water will also be available.)
