Who doesn’t like barbeque? Come to beautiful Washington Island on Friday and Saturday, August 28th & 29th, for the fourth annual Death’s Door Bar-B-Q (DDBBQ) at the Washington Island Airport. The first three events had visitors raving about the food quality and the friendliness and beauty of Washington Island.DDBBQ_doorcty1

Presented by the Washington Island Ferry Line and the Washington Island Chamber of Commerce, DDBBQ is a KCBS-Sanctioned Competition with 100% certified judges and $7,500 in prize money.

Death’s Door Bar-B-Q opens to the public at the Washington Island Airport on Saturday, August 29th at 10 am, with free admission, arts & crafts, kids’ activities, live music, food vendors, and of course – Barbequed Chicken, Pork, Pork Ribs, and Beef Brisket as sold by the DDBBQ competitors.

We are thrilled to be involved and look forward to working with KCBS, local food pantries and our terrific teams to donate some great meals this summer.
