Feb. 25 - 27, 2016
Thank you for your interest in participating in the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo World's Championship Bar-B-Que Contest!
New teams that wish to participate in the Contest and current teams that wish to obtain additional space must complete the WCBBQ Waitlist Application for Team Space. Applications are accepted from May 1 through August 31 of each year for the following year's contest. Teams are required to submit a new application on an annual basis. All applications are reviewed and evaluated on their own merit, not on a first-come, first-serve basis. Teams may be offered new or additional space at the sole discretion of the Show.
Teams that have successfully participated in prior years generally receive an invitation to return to the Contest, so new space is very limited. The Show does not disclose information about the number of teams that have applied for space.
We are no longer accepting Waitlist Applications for the 2016 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo’s World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest. Applications received by the Aug. 31, 2015, deadline will be reviewed and notifications will be sent to all applicants by Dec. 1, 2015.
For more information on the World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest, please check back periodically.
